2006 Santa Margherita Chianti Classico
|I had to look twice when I saw the $9.99 price on this one at my Costco because I knew this bottle was at least twice as expensive almost anywhere else. But I found a batch of 5 bottles of this tucked discreetly between two other bottle displays. And I’m glad I did.|
This is an elegant Chianti with a few years in the bottle to help soften things up a bit. Very earthy (or terrior driven as wine geeks would say), signature Chianti characteristics, subtle spice, cherry flavors, with a smooth dry finish.
Very nice all around, and if you can find it for $10, it’s also one heck of a bargain.
