Celebrate Chianti Classico

Celebrate Chianti Classico

Ready to toast with the toast of Toscana? This month is all about Chianti Classico! Produced in the heart of Toscana since the 13th century, this renowned red must be made from at least 80% Sangiovese grapes. Through November 1, 2020, enjoy Chianti Classico specials in our restaurants, get 15% off select bottles when you buy six or more, and follow along on Instagram for virtual tastings and chats with our wine experts. 

RAISE A GLASS AT OUR RESTAURANTS

Harvested in mid-September to mid-October, Chianti Classico is made from at least 80% Sangiovese grapes (though often much more!) and is a staple of any table in Toscana. The Chianti Classico Consortium was founded in 1924, to safeguard its trademark and the bond between the Black Rooster wine and its production zone. By 1984, Chianti Classico earned DOCG status, ensuring that all Chianti Classico wines are made in this designated region and according to very specific production requirements.

We're celebrating all things Chianti Classico in our restaurants, too! You'll find special menus of Chianti Classico by the glass or by the bottle at La Pizza & La Pasta indoors and outdoors. Ask our experts for recommendations on how to pair Chianti Classico with your favorite pasta, pizza, and our new menu of secondi.
