Frascole Chianti Rufina 2017 750ML



The Bottle: It's the stuff in straw-wrapped fiascos on red-checkered table cloths in Italian restaurants from here to San Francisco. It is the everyday wine in Tuscany, but can also be made into expensive, age-worthy bottles.

The Producer: With vineyards that have been passed down through the family for generations, Frascole sits on ancient Etruscan and Roman sites. The vineyards here are high-density with low yields and is completely hand harvested.

The Why:This medium-bodied wine has notes of tart cranberry, ripe red fruit and cooking spice that lead the way into grippy, integrated tannins. The wine is fermented in both oak and cement tanks.
