Canaiolo Nero

Canaiolo, literally translates to the Dog Days of August. Also known as Canaiolo Nero. Is a typically a blending component in Chianti.

Where is it grown?

It’s grown throughout Tuscany in the sub-regions that make up the Chianti DOCG, in addition to Umbria, Lazio, Marche, and, Liguria.

What does it taste like?

I’ve had limited experience having only tasted one 100% Canaiolo wine. It was soft, with less acid than the 90% Sangiovese Chianti form the same producer and vintage. Of darker colour it had quite an earthy, rich nature, compared to the Chianti from the same producer made perfect sense as a blending component. The winery was Poggio al Sole the Vintage 2015.

Paolo de Marchi, of Isole e Olena, describes Canaiolo in this video.

Monteraponi Chianti Classico Riserva ‘Il Campitello’ 2016

The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Il Campitello is dark, powerful and super-expressive. Black cherry, plum, spice, leather, licorice and menthol infuse this decidedly brooding, potent Riserva. A touch of new oak adds sweetness without being intrusive. Ample and strapping in feel, the 2016 could use a few more years in bottle to be at its best, but it is super-impressive, even today.
