Wine maker notes
The legend of Chianti wine dates to the 13th century. In 1716, the Medici family first defined the borders of this famous region in central Tuscany. Chianti wines are made in a wide range of styles, all based on the Sangiovese grape. We harvested the grapes from Chianti’s undulating hills, which provide excellent sun exposure for ripening. The well-draining soil types are said to influence Sangiovese’s flavors: sandstone contributes floral notes, calcareous/limestone soils accentuate wild berry notes and volcanic soils yield herbal notes of fresh tobacco. Our winemaker, Alessandro Perini, fermented and aged 20 percent of the wine in French oak barrels for rich, integrated flavors and smooth tannins. That portion was then aged for eight months. For vibrant fruit expression, he fermented the balance of the must in stainless steel tanks. Finally, he artistically blended the four grape varietals together.

Food pairing
Our Chianti is fabulous with pizza.

Producer
Stellina di Notte®, “little night star,” produces enticing Italian wines–Pinot Grigio, Chianti and Prosecco. The Pinot Grigio comes from appellation Tre Venezie–referring to the three regions: Veneto, Friuli Venezia Giulia and Trentino Alto Adige in northeast Italy, the most famous appellation for this spicy, minerally white grape. Sangiovese grapes for the Stellina di Notte Chianti are harvested from vineyards in the rolling hills of Tuscany. Romanticists will tell you that Italy’s beautiful, starry night skies are the perfect setting for sipping these delicious wines, hence the celestial name.
