This is very very good at the price.
I struggle with Chianti that I dearly love, when in profusion it so very often comes through as ordinary.....much like a lot of Bordeaux wines do.
Too much money for very average stuff!
But not this from Laithwaites. I got 3 bottles and now have one left. I wish I had ordered more. Elegant, characterful, ripe, dark cherries and very drinkable it is even at the full price a good buy if you want a Chianti that does the business.
We drank it over two days, the second being the best, but it warrants something with meat like rabbit or minced wild boar with pappardelle to do it authentic justice.
