In this episode, Jonathan and Damien go back to their roots and dive deep into aged Chianti Classico and their love of Italy. The guys start out by discussing what a government shutdown means for new wine vintages arriving in the US and then get right into everything Tuscany and Sangiovese. They compare and contrast two very distinct vintages of Chianti Classico from two very different sized producers while telling many stories from their families and their travels there. The discussion covers everything from wine being a food group to the legend of the black rooster. We hope you enjoy this episode.
