Dinner Tonight: Creamy Tuscan Chicken and Tenuta di Nozzole Chianti Classico DOCG Reserva 2020

December 27, 2023
Tenuta di Nozzole Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG

Are you ready for a quick change from the holiday fare? Dinner tonight isn’t prime rib, ham, roasted turkey, lobster tails or any of your other menu items from the last few weeks. Nonna (yeah, that’s me) is in the cucina and cooking Creamy Tuscan Chicken, an aromatic and savory dish guaranteed to satisfy. What is she sipping? Nonna chose an equally flavorful wine, Tenuta di Nozzole Chianti Classico DOCG Reserva 2020 from Tuscany.

Tenuta di Nozzole Chianti Classico DOCG Reserva 2020 complemented the Creamy Tuscan Chicken in the best way. In essence, this expression of Sangiovese delivered exactly what my senses wanted: intriguing texture and a round mouthfeel. On the nose, enticing red berries, cherries, dark plums, earth and a hint of tomatoes wafted from the glass. Vibrant, food friendly acidity and soft tannins provided structure and a foundation for rustic, savory flavors of spice, tomatoes, cranberries, pomegranates, and cherries. Neither the Creamy Tuscan Chicken, with its plethora of herbs, spices, intense aromatics and flavors, or wine clashed with the other – truly a match made in heaven (or Tuscany!).
