Our Chianti is ruby red in color with aromas of fruit and berries. It is full-bodied and well-balanced on the palate with distinct fruitiness, a touch of spice, and a lasting finish. This classic wine becomes more interesting as the meal proceeds.
The Fratelli Nistri winery is one of the oldest in Tuscany, dating back to 1865 when Francesco Nistri set up a wine trading business in Mezzana, on the outskirts of Prato. Today the winery continues as a family business run by Fabrizio Nistri and his brother. After 144 years this family sure knows Tuscany, Chianti, and how to work with the Sangiovese grape. Nistri Winery is near the town of Panzano, in the center of the Chianti Classico production zone.

Making everything easier! ™
Whether a classically trained sommelier or a novice in the wine world, we’ve all had this experience before.
You walk into a supermarket, liquor store, or wine shop and gawk at hundreds (even thousands) of bottles there in front of you. So, which wine do you choose? Do you choose based on country or varietal (type of wine)? Do you pick a color, cover your eyes, and randomly select a bottle? Perhaps you attempt to match the type of wine with your meal. Or, do you simply go with the same bottle you’ve been buying for years because you’re afraid to try something new? You might even pull out your smartphone to quickly search the Internet for recommended bottles in your price range.
Wines For Dummies takes the headache out of choosing a wine that fits your needs. If you already know what you’re having for dinner, check the back of our labels for suggestions on what pairs well with each varietal. If you’re looking for a certain flavor, check the back label for a plain English explanation of what to expect inside the bottle. And, if you’re struggling to pronounce the name on one of our wines, no worries! All of our wines include a phonetic pronunciation on the front label.
We want you to enjoy wine, regardless of experience or budget. So, say no to anxiety, complications, and fancy language. It’s time that you spend less energy worrying about which wine to get and more energy enjoying the wines you’ll love.
