Why do we love it?

Casanuova di Nittardi Chianti Classico is in addition to a top Chianti and a very special wine. The 2020 has already received excellent reviews (93pts from James Suckling and 94pts from Falstaff) but what makes it absolutely collectable is definitely its label and packaging! Not one, but six different labels along with the matching wrapper for the year 2020!

Fattoria Nittardi has a long history dating back to the 16th century when it was in the hands of Michelangelo Buonarroti. While Michelangelo was painting Cappella Sistina he came close to the Pope and thus he was sending him wines every year. This is a tradition that continues until today, and the wines of each year are first presented to the Pope.

In 1982 the winery passed into the hands of Peter Femfert and his wife, Stefania Canali. Peter and Stefania decided to pay homage to Michelangelo and so every year, for 41 years, the Casanuova di Nittardi label is designed by an artist. This year there was a worldwide competition and 6 different artists were selected! One of them is the 11 years old Andreas Floudas from Greece! 

The content of the bottle is 100% Sangiovese from the vineyard Vigna Doghessa. The wine ages for 14 months in old French oak barrels (only 10% of them are new). After, it's bottled and aged for a few months in the bottle, remaining in the cellar of the winery.

 

*It circulates under 6 different labels and the one you will receive is random. Aren't you already very anxious which will be your lucky one? If you want you can get the collectible case with all six different labels here.

CASANUOVA CHIANTI CLASSICO 2020 - FATTORIA NITTARDI

PAIR IT

Pair it with lamp chops with eggplants and tomato, beef ragout or with a  juicy bistecca alla fiorentina.

Rooster Pastitsada (spicy tomato sauce)

1 kg of rooster, cut into portions

500 gr. spaghetti (ideally no. 2)

1 clove of garlic

2 large onions

2 tbsps. white wine vinegar

200 ml. red wine

1 tbsp. of sugar

1 tbsp. of butter

2 tbsps. of tomato paste

150 gr. tomato sauce

2 bay leaves

1 cinnamon stick

3-4 all spices

Olive oil

Freshly ground black pepper

Salt

Wash the rooster and dry it with absorbent paper. Heat up the olive oil in a frying pan, brown the pieces of the rooster well on all sides and transfer them to a wide, deep pot.

In the pan (with the olive oil) we used before, add the butter, garlic and onions after chopping them. We saute them until they soften, and then add the vinegar. Then return the meat into the pot.

Put the pot in high heat and pour in the wine. Leave for a few minutes to evaporate and then add the spices, sugar, pepper and salt. Finally add the tomato paste dissolved in a cup of hot water.

Lower the heat and let simmer until the meat softens and the sauce is thick.

Check regularly to have enough sauce and add extra hot water if necessary.

When the rooster is tender, boil the spaghetti in another pot.

Remove the meat from the saucepan and place it on a serving platter. Put the spaghetti in the sauce and mix well to absorb the juices.

Serve the spaghetti with the meat and if you want, sprinkle with a little cinnamon and grated cheese.
