Villa Sant'Anna is a terrific winery that almost wasn't — Simona Ruggeri and her two daughters farm a large estate, planted almost entirely to fruits and vegetables and just 10 hectares of grapes that, in the olden days, were sold off in bulk. In 1989 the family experimented with making their own wine and were thrilled at the results. This gained them the attention of star importer Neal Rosenthal, and the rest is history. Their Chianti is 90% Sangiovese with some other grapes blended in in tiny amounts — Merlot, Canaiolo, Colorino and Mammolo. It is a classic, earthy and cherry-fruited wine with ripe tannins and tons of food-friendly versatility. 

What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...

The Chianti Colli Senesi from vineyards with a southwestern exposure situated at about 1,000 feet above sea level. Composed of 80% Sangiovese with 10% Canaiolo and 10% other indigenous varietals, the average age of these vines is now (as of 2012) approximately 30 years. The grapes for the Chianti Colli Senesi are macerated for 15 days in cement cuves at temperatures reaching 30 degrees Celsius. After the malolactic fermentation, the wine is then aged in mid-sized barrels for 8 months to a year prior to bottling. The wine is then released after an additional 3 to 6 months of bottle age. Production levels are approximately 1,800 cases per year.
