This was a wonderful wine for a wonderful sirloin! Carpineto Chianti Classico Riserva 2018 is a red wine from Chianti Classico in Tuscany, Italy.

Now it must be said that I am convinced that this wine also tastes wonderful with both outside and tenderloin, in addition to good steaks. The turkey will also love this Chianti just as much and you shouldn't miss out on testing it for delicious pasta dishes.

The wine is made mainly from Sangiovese grapes, with small amounts of Canaiolo and other local grape varieties. The wine is aged in oak barrels for at least 12 months before bottling, which gives it a complex and rich flavor profile.
