Wild Forest Berries, Blackberry
Preserve and Almonds
Today we have a fantastic everyday value in red wine.
If you're a fan of pizza, spaghetti with meatballs, or nearly any Italian fare, then you're probably already familiar with Chianti. It's one of our favorite red wines to drink at home.
The primary grape variety in Chianti is Sangiovese, which is also the foundation for Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino. Sangiovese also pops up as a blending grape in Carmignano, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, and Morellino di Scansano.
Today's Chianti is a great quaffer, which means it's easy drinking and not overly complicated but also really tasty and pleasing. The price is just right at less than $12/bottle after discount.
Fattorie Melini San Lorenzo Chianti 2016
"With a bright, ruby color, the wine has a pronounced bouquet of raspberries and blackberries, with hints of violets and irises. In the mouth, there are well defined, full and savory flavors with a lingering, pleasant aftertaste of wild forest berries, blackberry preserve and almonds." (Winemaker's Notes)
"This wine's subdued red plum and underbrush aromas emerge in the glass. The simple palate delivers red cherry, vanilla and clove flavors alongside supple tannins." (Wine Enthusiast)
