I love dry full bodied Chianti. This does not fall in to this category. Definitely on the lighter side and probably paired well with pizza. Easy drinking. However, cannot say I would go out and buy it again.
I HATED this wine from the first sip! Since I only know French wines (as I lived in Paris for 20 years until recently), I thought it must be Chianti, or????
In any case I couldn't dump it fast enough, and am not about to open the second bottle, either.
Very poor introduction indeed.

I'm no wine expert, and I generally prefer a moscato or Merlot, so the first sip was a bit of a surprise. By the end of the first glass, however, I did find myself enjoying the bitter bite on my tongue and the way it interacted with the food. Not my favorite, but good.
