What’s the next best thing to being in Tuscany, otherwise known to many wine lovers as Paradise, the embodiment of the phrase “what grows together, goes together?” Drinking the quintessential Tuscan food wine, Chianti, from a winery that refers to itself as the farm of paradise.
The 2020 Poderi del Paradiso Chianti Colli Senesi DOCG (poderi is Italian for farm; paradiso translates to paradise) is the quality, ultimate value Sangiovese for pairing with your Italian night feast.Enjoy it alongside a meal with fresh, simple ingredients - pasta, beans, tomatoes, Pecorino Romano, and olive oil (by the way, Poderi Del Paradiso has hundreds of olive trees with fruit that produces amazing olive oil), good crusty bread… do we need to go on? We’re pretty sure you know how to do Italian night.
The 2020 vintage in Tuscany was marked by hot and dry days that created beautifully ripe grapes that gained acidity and aromatics during the region’s cool nights. The Colli Senesi DOCG is located close enough to the Mediterranean Sea so it felt cooling breezes that came inland that summer, too, further benefiting the Sangiovese grapes in this wine.
These conditions, along with a skilled winemaker's hand, resulted in a ruby red wine with aromas of cherry and violet with cherry, cranberry, pepper, leather, and cocoa on the palate. A harmonious and persistent finish completes this easy-going wine that’s perfect for any night of the week.
The other thing that’s perfect for any night of the week, is that BHW has this Chianti from the classic region of Colli Senesi DOCG for just $19.99, 33% off its usual $30 price tag. At this price, buy several, invite your friends, and have a big Italian feast.
