THE REVIEW

Since 1716, Chianti has been making good meals great. Ideal for "gravy” foods such as pizza, lasagna and ziti to grandma's meatballs, Chianti is legendary for its ability to pair well with tomato based and cold weather cuisine.
    At $16, we couldn't believe the nuance in this traditional style Chianti. Replete with spice and cherry notes, Giacomo Mori runs circles around its competitors at this price point. "There aren't too many better wine buys in Italy than this lovely wine." Stephen Tanzer
    
"Mori's 2012 Chianti jumps from the glass with sweet red berries, smoke, spices and tons of pure Sangiovese personality. This plump, juicy Chianti delivers the goods, and then some. Readers looking for an affordable, traditionally made Chianti will adore the 2012."Antonio Galloni
    Once you open this delicious Chianti, we highly recommend starting off with a wedge of Parmesan cheese and olives. The salt in these foods brings out the flavors allowing the wine to dance on your palate. Read More »
