Recently opened by the folks behind Frasca Food and Wine, this hospitality-driven hotspot is inspired by Italian traditions. The brilliant Carlin Karr, who directs the wine program, allows for a sizable amount of French bubbles on the otherwise Italian list.
From the Sommelier: “The region of Chianti Classico has gone through a massive farming renaissance in the last 20 years. Numerous producers have transitioned to making 100% Sangiovese-based wines that are plush, fruit forward and savory. The wines make you hungry from the second you stick your nose in the glass. The best part is that these are some of the greatest value wines in the world of wine. As a wine buyer for the last 10 years, I cannot think of a better value, pound for pound, than Chianti Classico. It checks so many boxes in terms of structure, body, savor, age-ability, and mass appeal.” —Carlin Karr, Tavernetta
