2007 Frescobaldi Nipozzano Chianti Riserva
|Frescobaldi makes a lovely Chianti, even at the lower price points. Their Nipozzano though is where they really begin to shine.|
For $18.99 at Costco (I usually see it closer to $23), this is a hard one to beat. Remarkably smooth, this is an easy drinking, flavor packed wine with an excellent medium body and a complex finish that comes on unexpectedly and hangs around for a long time.
An instant crowd pleaser that would be superb with food, this is one to remember. We held a giveaway earlier this month where we asked readers to suggest bottles they enjoy drinking and sharing during the holidays. Well, this one is one of ours. And you’re getting a nice price right now at Costco on it.
