CHIANTI CLASSICO
A blend of San Giovese grapes, Cimino and Trebbiano, dry and very Italian. The grapes are hand harvested, fermented, and gently pressed to produce the traditional hand-made wines that the Losi's are famous for, characterized by their intense intriguing richness and spicy aromas.
CHIANTI COLLI SENSI DOCG & RISERVA DUCALE
For years Luigi Vagnoni has made this famous Chianti Colli Senesi DOCG wine by traditional methods. Hand harvested and gently pressed, this fine wine is vinified in glass lined stainless steel tanks for a period of about eight months and then barrel aged for one year in barrique.
CHIANTI CLASSICO RISERVA
This wine is aged in Slavonic oak barrels for a period of between 24 - 28 months. It is then bottled and gets a further 6 - 8 months aging.
SAN GIOVESE
Sangiovese is the primary grape used in Northern Italy in the region of Tuscany to make Chianti and also for Brunello di Montalcino. Sangiovese produces wines that are spicy, with good acid levels, smooth texture and medium body. In the right climates and with controlled yields, Sangiovese can be made into very structured and full bodied wines. It is usually blended with other grapes for best results and in northern Italy is blended with Cabernet Sauvignon in the 'Super Tuscan' blends.
BAROLO
They say Barolo is a king of wine for kings "Full body heavy red wine"
MONTEPLUCIANO D'ABRUZZO
Smooth red wine with character
AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA
Amarone della Valpolicella, or Amarone for short, is created in the Venitian region of Italy. Originally there was only one legal region, or DOC, for the Valpolicella name. These wines are made with the Corvina Veronese, Rondinella and Molinara grapes. Two sub- groups emerged, though - recioto, which is a sweet dessert wine, and amarone, which is a dry red wine with great body.

CHARDONNAY
Chardonnay is a white wine, made in Italy. A light, steely Chardonnay that looks and drinks more like a Pinot Grigio than your typical Chardonnay. There is immediate separation of the skins, before fermentation occurs. Nice honey and flowery flavorsemerge, with the presence of a very little oak, if any. Clean and crisp, Belmondo's Chardonnay adds life to food.
