"The Chianti DOCG designation applies to all Chianti wines other than those made from grapes grown in the Chianti Classico area. This appellation covers six specific sub-zones, such as Chianti Rufina and Chianti Colli Senesi, by far the largest of the sub-zones. It extends west and south of the classico zone and encompasses vineyards around San Gimignano, Montalcino and Montepulciano among others. The warmer microclimate of the southern part of Colli Senesi, enables producers to make relatively full-bodied Chianti wines. Fattoria del Cerro has 50 acres of these vineyards in the Chianti Colli Senesi appellation. Comprehensive in their diversity, the different expositions of the vineyards allow for a rigorous selection of the best grapes to make quality wines. Vivid Ruby red color, slight purplish hues. The bouquet on the nose is fruity with hints of wild black cherry, cherry and a delicate balsamic and herbal finish. On the palate it is soft and full bodied with excellent persistence. Best served with first course dishes, meat and mushroom sauces, veal stews and roast chicken.”~Winery Notes

Fattoria del Cerro

View all from Fattoria del Cerro
Fattoria del CerroAcquired in 1978 by Saiagricola, the Fattoria del Cerro estate was already an established part of the Montepulciano winemaking community and under the Baiocchi family, who founded the estate in 1922. This long-standing tradition allowed Fattoria del Cerro to play a major role in the renaissance this area experienced with the creation of the DOCG appellations in 1980. Fattoria del Cerro emerged from this transitional period as one of the foremost producers of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. Today, the estate is comprised of 1,485 acres of land. In addition to olive groves, wooded areas and fields, there are 230 acres of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano vineyards, 90 acres of Rosso di Montepulciano vineyards, 50 acres of Chianti Colli Senesi vineyards and 52 acres of other ­varietal vineyards. The state-of-the-art winery produces 850,000 bottles of wine every year.

Great wine for a great price

"Traditional Chianti with plenty of fruit. A solid red for pairing with hearty Italian fare, cheese, and meat."

RB's Colli Senesi 2016 review

"upon initial tasting in August 2018 I found this wine to be a bit thin but with all the flavor qualities of a good Chianti. Re-tasted a month later and the thinness has disappeared. Sure it still could be a bit richer but at this price it is a fabulous Chianti. Had it with my favorite pasta tomato sauce and it went perfectly. Haven't tried it with Fava beans yet."

Eric

Jeff

"Nice everyday red for the price."

Marykate .r

Pleasant smooth, a little thin, great price

"We like this wine- it’s pleasant and a great value."

Steven

Great price and good!

"I would say this is a gentle chianti, probably because it is young. I bought a case so I can enjoy it now and I predict it will get better as it ages. It's worth the gamble at this price."

Glenn

Decent red table wine

Greg

Enjoyably pleasant wine

Charles

Great price, but not distinctive

Guy

Off Tasting Chianti

"I usually enjoy Chianti, but there's something off with this one. Opened one bottle and it was definitely off (green and rough). Poured it down the drain, thinking it was a bad bottle. Second bottle was a tiny bit better, but still very off. Not drinkable. I really wanted to like it (after all, a reasonably priced Chianti), but no joy here."

Carol
