Named after the Chianti region of central Tuscany, this red wine is classically Italian. A medium-bodied wine with notes of red berries and violets. Enjoy with red meats and pasta. Best served at room temperature.
Pizza or pasta night on the cheap always presents a conundrum. You're not spending much on your food and you'd like an equally inexpensive (but tasty!) wine to enjoy with it. Here's a simple but good option from Aldi that has that authentic tart and rustic Chianti character.
The 2016 Adventure Series Chianti features lots of ripe red cherry, cranberry, leather and a little menthol on the nose. Tasting the medium-bodied wine reveals a soft mouthfeel and similar fruit to the nose although it's a bit more tart in the mouth. Well-balanced and with a little earthiness as well, this is simply a good basic Chianti at a great price. It makes a great option for pizza or pasta night on a tight budget. The wine ends dry with a little lingering spice. Solid stuff!
