Year of the Rooster Wine
According to the Chinese lunar calendar, January 28, 2017 marks the beginning of The Year of The Rooster. Those born in the astronomical moment of the rooster possess many excellent traits such as trustworthiness, timeliness, accuracy and a strong work ethic. Italian wines marked with the symbol of the rooster also offer an element of dependability- an assurance of quality that points to Chianti Classico.
The *2013 Castello di Albola Chianti Classico DOCG (SRP $19)* is a classic example of these traditional wines – a beautifully structured Sangiovese offering a depth of red fruit, smoke and earth. When seeking out a reliable wine for all occasions look for the rooster!
The black rooster (the symbol of the Chianti Classico DOCG) dates back hundreds of years and can be found on every bottle of wine produced in this region. Chianti is made from Sangiovese, which is widely planted throughout this Tuscan region and produces medium bodied, well-structured wines that provide a backbone to any meal.
The Year of the “Rooster Wine” will impact all signs of the zodiac, particularly those signs attracted to flavorful Italian cheeses, grilled steaks or spaghetti Bolognese!
