Very nice Chianti here. Get on it. Made from cooler vineyards up on the hills of Tuscany. Its like Adele singing your favorite song on the piano. It looks pretty good, has some great raspy depth and packs a cute little zip. When you’re done chasing pavement, serve this with spaghetti and meatballs.
