2006 Banfi Chianti Classico Riserva
|A nicely assembled and fairly priced ($15) bottle that exemplifies the good wines that can be found from Italy in the mid-teen dollar range. This is a flavorful wine, tons of cherry with a long finish and stickiness. It pours nice, looks good in the glass, and just seems to play the role of a nice Chianti Classico very well. |
Ideal with grilled meats or Italian fare, this is an excellent dinner accompaniment. I’m going to add it to my Value Picks given its appealing flavor and all around astute characteristics. For $15, this is a good bottle of Italian wine.
