2010 Basilica Cafaggio Chianti Classico
Here’s a $10 winner at Costco. What a beautiful Chianti for the money. It’s a Chianti Classico, DOCG, single vineyard…everything you want to see on the label. Why it’s only $10 is beyond me.I could tell on the pour and after a quick sniff this was going to be an enjoyable wine. The wine looks bright and lively in the glass, not too dark, and it is relatively medium to light in body. Nothing overbearing. Nice fruit, red cherry, with a little tart to it, some cranberry perhaps, hints of strawberry and plum. Sticky finish. Pretty smooth character on this wine.For only $10 this is your go to mid-week meal wine. It’s light and easy, perfect for almost anything. I’m going to add this bottle to our Value Picks list. Enjoy this one.
