2007 Gabbiano Chianti

Varietal: Chianti
Region: Italy
Cost: $8.99

Slightly dry red wine that will hit you on the back of the tongue.  Slight cherry flavors and good tannins on the finish make this a good red for pasta, pizza, or red meat.

Recommendations: I’m a sucker for chianti, and Gabbiano is one that I always find myself returning to.  On an evening by myself, I paired this chianti with a pasta dish.  The dryness of the wine was a nice compliment to the sauciness of the meal.

For the price, Gabbiano is great in that it’s a consistently good chianti.  While I’m certain you can find a better chianti, you’ll be hard pressed to find one for this price that will consistently impress.  For a dinner of pasta or pizza this is worth keeping on hand.
