Bellagio Chianti

 

Bellagio Chianti

Bellagio Chianti

Varietal:  Chianti

Region:  Italy

Cost:  $9.99 – $11.99

 

Very subtle aromas of berry (cherry and cranberry) lead you into a very middle of the road red wine.  Good tannins will pair well with red meat or a saucy pasta.  

 

Recommendation:  I think that most people will buy this wine simply for the bottle, and there’s nothing wrong with that.  The Bellagio chianti won’t change your idea of what a chianti should be, but if you’re looking for a red wine that will work great as a table wine, and pairs well with Italian food or just for something to drink after a long day at work, the cost of this very simple chianti certainly makes it worth considering.  Give it a try if you’re in the market for something new, but don’t set your expectations too high or this wine will disappoint.

    Here’s a link to WineZap where you can buy it from several places online. If you’re looking for it in a store – I’ve found it in most of my local grocers.
