A Beginner’s Guide to Chianti and Chianti Classico
If you’re like me, you have probably had Chianti with just about any meal and you can even enjoy the less expensive ones as a guzzler. There is no challenge that Chianti does not live up to.
There was a time when Chianti could have been looked at as simply a pizza and pasta wine, but not any more.
I recently came across this article in my favorite wine publication, Wine Enthusiast, and thought I would share it with you just before I head out to the liquor store. Hopefully, I can get my hands on a few of the five recommendations below that Lauren Mowbery provides within the article. Regardless I will find some Chianti which you will here about in our next issue. If you want to read about my latest samplings click here
