My previous recommendation of the Chianti below obviously did not create a buying frenzy as it’s now discounted. Gotta like that, and naturally now I’m highly recommend it. Sure to please fans of lighter reds – for enjoying tomato sauce pasta, pizza, white meets, and salmon. Expect bright cherry flavours, a lively feeling, and a wine that gets things going – for you and your palate. Hits the sweet spots between ‘give me food’ and a fun drinking wine.
