I’m finally back in the states and excited to share with you the promised “Chianti Classico Black Rooster Story”. First things first, if you haven’t already, take a look at my previous blog post about Italian wines and what those letters at the top of every bottle mean.
I have the good fortune of writing this blog post from my sister’s apartment in the center of ancient Rome. The last few days have seen me enjoying enough pizza, pasta, and wine to last a lifetime (all at the expense of my waistline). Last night I did take a moment to pause mid feasting and inspect the bottle of wine we were sipping. Along with the region, winery, and vintage, a group of letters were printed on the label. After inquiring what the letters stand for, I learned a thing or two about Italian wine classification. And if you enjoy a good Italian wine, you’ll want to know too.
