Varietal: Â Chianti
Region: Â Italy
Cost: Â $14.99
Cherry on the nose feeds into plum and blackberry on the palate. Â Some spice and oak on the backend of the wine, with a very dry finish. Â Pair with juicy red meats (beef or lamb), or sauce heavy pastas.
Recommendation: Â As a fan of dry red wines, this one is a keeper for me. Â That being said, this is probably best paired with something as opposed to be enjoyed by itself. Â The finish may be too dry for some, so if you’re not into tannin heavy, very dry red wines, this isn’t really the one for you. Â Serve this with a sauce heavy pasta dish and you’re more likely to enjoy it. Â Not a bad chianti, but for the price point there are better ones out there.
