Chianti (pronounced "key-an-tee") is a red blend from Tuscany, Italy. Made predominantly with Sangiovese grapes, the flavours of the wine tend to lean to the red-fruited spectrum. Chianti is a small region within Tuscany, but a wine calling itself “Chianti” is allowed to be made almost anywhere in Tuscany. There are 8 different sub-regions within Chianti - Colli Senesi, Colline Pisane, Colli Aretini, Montalbano, Montespertoli, Classico, Rùfina and Colli Fiorentini - that all have different ageing criteria for the Chanti produced 9anywhere from 6 months to over a year). The truest examples of the style come from Chianti Classico. Both Chianti Classico and Chianti Rufina are likely to be of higher quality since they are made in smaller quantities from distinct historical areas.
