Jamie’s Wine of the Week 01/19

Castelgufo Organic Chianti Riserva 2016

Looking for an organic red blend that offers as much complexity as it does versatility? At an everyday price point, Castelgufo Chianti Riserva exemplifies the value that can be found in Italian reds. This delightful blend of Sangiovese, Colorino, and Malvasia Nera comes from the heart of Tuscany between Pisa and Florence. For three generations, the Cerester Winery has been producing award winning wines that are approachable and affordable without compromising quality. A nose of red berry fruit, spice, and subtle floral notes leads to cherry, currant, and raspberry on a medium-bodied palate with hints of clove, cocoa, and soft tannins. Pair a glass of Castelgufo with anything from homemade flatbread pizza to bison burgers with goat cheese, caramelized onions, and date spread.

Cheers! -Jamie
