Other Types of Red Wine

You may also try some other reds when you want to taste something new.

Italian Reds

  • Sangiovese – Planted the most widely in Italy.
  • Chianti - Arguably the most well known of the Italian wines. Chianti is a wine region and not a grape. It is made from a blend of grapes including: Sangiovese, Caniolo, Trebbiano and Malvasia. We carry 2013 and 2014 Contea di Lucca Chianti.
  • Barolo - These are the biggest and boldest of Italian reds. High tannin levels, with a little rough for young Barolos but soften with age. We carry 2009 Silvano Bolmida Barolo Bussia.
  • Montepulciano – Medium bodied fruit flavors with a hint of floristic tone. We carry 2014 Talamonti Montepulciano d'Abruzzo.

French Reds

  • Bordeaux - most famous wine region worldwide. We carry many Bordeaux reds. e.g. 1996 Chateau Lynch Bages, 2011 Chateau Le Pey.
  • Burgundy - red Burgundies are complex and have flavors of ripe dark berries.

2014 BILLAUD-SIMON Chablis 1er Cru Les Vaillons. 2009 Domaine Jacques Prieur Champs Pimont Rouge, Beaune 1er Cru.
