While Ormanni makes a number of wines– the thing they do best is make Sangiovese. Every year, their Chianti Classico, Riserva and Gran Selezione earn some big time scores. Farming organically and using both cement and steel for fermenting, the winery takes their time with aging, with the wines eventually being switched to casks. These make for some crazy good, age-worthy wines.
But that’s not what I’m talking about today; I’m all about value! Luckily, like most great producers, at Ormanni, they make both.
The Ormanni Chianti DOCG is a sleek, juicy Sangiovese made from grapes along the border of that historic Black Rooster Chianti area. It’s a versatile, delicious little number that absolutely shines at the dinner table.
But unlike most Ormanni wines that start to come to life after a couple of years as a result of their careful aging, the Chainti is meant to be drank in its youth- roaring right out the gates with juicy cherry and strawberry notes, aided by a hint of baking spice, earth and touch of rusticity.
