By Sarah at Wine90:
"...internationally there is growing demand for Chianti Classico which is now world renowned for offering fantastic QPR and has shed it's straw covered/tourist image."
I wish I could say this was totally true, but I think there is still a stigma for some people. It is undeserved at this point, and I am hoping for the day where it doesn't even need to be mentioned any more. Great reviews by Wine90 but I wish there were some other lesser known names in the mix.
