TENUTA DI RENIERI, CHIANTI CLASSICO

 

TUSCANY, ITALY 2018

 

 

95 points and under $30 dollars, need we say more?
 

And if you lean toward dense, powerful wines, more Brunello than Pinot Noir —well, today’s your lucky day.
 

This one comes to us from the folks at Tenuta di Renieri, a highly-acclaimed producer whose estate lies at the southern part of Montalcino.
 

If you’re not a fan of Chianti—if you think of it as a budget wine—this release of their Gran Selezione (the newest designation presented by the Chianti Consorzio in 2014, intended to restore consumer faith in the wines of this region) will almost certainly change your mind.
 

Gran Selezione wines are are made from grapes from the best parcels of an estate, and produced under stricter regulations, including longer aging requirements and a rigorous approval process by a panel of winemaking peers.
 

This designation affirms that a wine is at the top of the pyramid of Chiantis, and effectively creates, in the words of the consortium, a “new king of Chianti.”
 

In this release from Tenuta di Renieri, we can see the dividends this new initiative has produced. It’s Chianti at its best: big and rich, with good structure and a lengthy and impressive finish.
 

But today, we don’t stop there.
 

We’re also offering the 93-point, sub-$20 Chianti Classico Riserva. For those of you looking for an even bigger bargain, this is a crowd-friendly table wine that suits almost any occasion.
 

With today’s special Mix & Match pricing (up to 30% off!), you can stock up on two wines that are as undervalued as they are delicious.
