A Chianti Classico that I enjoyed a lot.  Not expensive, with typical Sangiovese (90% of the blend) character- this is my kind of Italian wine.  Sure, the Super Tuscans are challenging the traditional boys, but deep down, the Italians have something special with this grape.  Remeber my thoughts on the Sapnish with their indigenous grape, same applies here.  When you have something unique and good, go with it.  I had to look up what the big boys said about this one, and agree completely.  The average form the heavy hitters was 91, completely agree and add my 4.5 stars to it.  (I drank this one mid-summer and can’t recollect my exact details)fonterutoli chianti
