$15 Retail

Tuscany's Chianti Classico region, nestled between Florence and Siena, produces many styles of wine with great flavors and rich textures. This bargain bottling is fashioned from a single vineyard planted with select Sangiovese clones on hillsides rising to 1,300 feet in Classico's Gaiole sub-region. This medium-bodied, versatile wine was aged in oak barriques. In the glass, it offers floral, black cherry, cedar and earthy aromas. On the palate, taste plum, dark berries, a pleasing minerality, hints of tobacco and chocolate and rustic tannins. Decant an hour before serving for best flavor. Drink it with veal chops, roast game, grilled mushrooms, eggplant dishes, truffled risotto and pizza. Buy it at: Hopper's Carte des Vins. Drink it at: Atchafalaya.— BRENDA MAITLAND
