Late Sunday afternoon, the gravy is bubbling away on the stove, slowly thickening, transforming from simple tomatoes, onion, garlic, seasonings and spices into something that transcends time. It is the great tradition, the link that connects one generation to the next. Part of this tradition involves more than the red sauce, but the red wine as well. Familia Cara Chianti Riserva embodies that tradition. This full-bodied dry Chianti embodies the tradition of the family meal. Whether this is served with a lasagna too heavy for one person to lift from the oven or a roast, juicy and rare, you will feel the connection to the generations that have come before you.
From the Winemaker
This wine is made of selected grapes from the best Chianti region vineyards. This Riserva mirrors the tradition of the refined art of Tuscan winemaking. Aged in oak casks, this rich red wine, full-bodied and dry, affords a complex final touch of cherries and pepper. It is ecellent with roasts, game and duck.
"This wine is a pale red with tart dried red cherries in the bouquet and nose. As the wine breathes, it becomes more complex and delicious. I note a strong woodiness. The finish is definitely not long. Although the wine is thin and acidic, it has that lip-smacking, dry punch that I enjoy. I would rate this wine as very good." - Tom and Melody's Wine Blog
