Score: 8.2 – Over DeliversGabbiano Chianti Classico 2011
Price: $17.99-$19.99

About the Wine: What a delightful wine. Classic notes of sour cherry and fresh plum, dried herbs and violets. Hints of leather and oak combine with the fresh fruit on the finish.

Value: Pay the extra dollar or two, and buy this by the case. Most Chiantis are priced $14-$16, but most Chianti Classico is over $20 which means this could have been a dud, but it way over delivers for the price.

Added Value: There is added value to those who are foodies. This wine seems to have been made to have with a meal, break some bread and dream of tomorrows to come.

Service: Let breathe for at least 30 minutes or run it through your Vinturi and serve at room temperature. If you live in the desert and it is over 25C in the house/on the patio chill it down a few degrees. As for a food pairing, I had this wine with a simple plate of prosciutto, olives, baguette and Asiago and it was divine. Sometimes simplicity is the best thing when it comes to food and wine pairing.
