The first definition of a wine area called Chianti was made in 1716. ... In 1995 it became legal to produce a Chianti with 100% Sangiovese. For a wine to retain the name of Chianti, it must be produced with at least 80% Sangiovese grapes. Aged Chianti (38 months instead of 4–7) may be labelled as Riserva.
Food Suggestion: Pair this with classic Tuscan dishes such as wild boar ragu, grilled steak and stewed white beans.
