This was an incredibly lucky find – one of those wines that, for whatever reason, didn't get the attention it deserved when it was released. It's in absolutely superb drinking form right now, the perfect wine for pizza night – or any night, really. This oak-aged Sangiovese-dominant blend is an awesome match for everyday Italian fare, and it'll complement any meat you throw on the grill this summer (chicken, pork, beef, you name it). Or just drink it on its own. You won't find a better-tasting Italian red anywhere, especially at this price. Bene!
This Chianti Classico displays notes of violets and irises, with hints of fruits of the forest and vanilla. A dry wine, it is smooth, with an elegant, lingering aftertaste of raspberries, dried cherries and almonds. It's a great pairing for poultry, lamb and mature pecorino cheese.
