For me no red wine feels more Fallish than Chianti. Especially one that’s had about five years in-bottle. Not only do you get the feelings and flavours of a forest floor but a sense of the patina on things in the Fall of their life. Love drinking wine that echoes the season. Paired with a few last grilled meats.
Most Italian reds have an earthy side, which becomes quite pronounced with some ageing. The mature Chianti below will take you ‘down in the woods’ with wonderful Fall day feelings. And suggestions of roasted meats and vegetables. Nourishment Tuscan style. If this sounds like your thing, move quickly as this is a very reasonable price for a mature wine. Good quantities throughout the province.
