"Geggiano’s fine Chianti, made in an ancient cellar that hasn’t changed since the Renaissance, is a wine of rustic country beauty. Broad-shouldered, with hearty tannin and acidity and a dark, earthy quality to its fruit, it is a lumberjack wine that can cut through anything a Tuscan table can throw its way—wild game and aged cheeses are personal favorites. Geggiano is just north of Siena, in the southern reaches of the Chianti Classico zone. Its owners, the Bandinelli brothers, thus cast their allegiance with the Sienese rather than the Florentines." –Dixon Brooke
