For your Chicken Parm dilemma!

March 14, 2023

Oh, the Chicken Parm dilemma!

Takeout or homemade?

Chicken parm with a side of fresh pasta?

With roasted vegetables?  

On a fresh ciabatta roll?  

Oh, the dilemma!!!

No matter your preference, Volpaia's Chianti Classico is your pairing answer.  The wine is pure finesse with Sangiovese vineyards among the highest altitudes in all of Chianti.

"A bright, succulent style, this exudes cherry, strawberry, earth and tobacco aromas and flavors, with spicy character.Wine Spectator

"Pure and beautifully integrated... a wonderful and polished expression hailing from the village of Radda.Jeb Dunnuck

What We Love About Volpaia

In addition to the gorgeous Sangiovese, about 10% Merlot is added to the wine - the Merlot adds a velvety texture to the Sangiovese's structure and magnificent acidity.  

A polished style, this Chianti boasts sweet tannins and a lingering finish. 

This outstanding value can be drunk now and over the next five years.  

Certified organic and from one of the oldest designated vineyards in Italy, Volpaia is textbook Chianti that will not disappoint.

Grab a case and enjoy this wine with your chicken parm, pizza, pasta, or your favorite hard cheeses.  

Enjoy!

"Fine tannins and firm acidity."

James Suckling • 93/100

"Black-cherry and orange-peel aromas and flavors. Some lead pencil and slate, too. It’s medium-bodied with fine tannins and firm acidity, which adds verve and tension to the wine. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold."

"A rich bouquet of red fruits and spices."
