Sue Bella Rosa Chianti Is essential to Italian cuisine as Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
For a wine to retain the name of Chianti, it must be produced with a minimum of 80% Sangiovese grapes. Sue Bella Rosa Chianti meets this minimum and its delicious flavors paired with high acidity and tannin makes it an incredible wine with food.
Sue Bella Rosa Chianti has an intense ruby red color, and a lively and intense aroma characterized by notes of red berries and ripe black berries.
Taste Profile: Soft and dry, Sue Bella Rosa Chianti delivers lip-smacking juicy red cherry flavors and a chocolatey complexity. Nicely balanced flavors of red cherry fruit, preserved sour cherries, herbal notes of dried oregano and sweet balsamic vinegar, smokey dried salami and a touch of earth. This wine is known for drinkability and is easy on the wallet, too!
Pair with: There are few pleasures as distinct as a tart, spicy, herbaceous Chianti next to a plate of sliced prosciutto or Pasta al Pomodoro. The high acidity of Sue Bella Rosa cuts through richer, fatty dishes. Tomato-based pasta sauces are a fantastic pairing. If you can, try a Tuscan slow-simmered Ragu al Chingiale made with wild boar. Sue Bella Rosa Chianti also makes a fine compliment to pizza, strong tasting poultry dishes, spiced lamb or beef.
