Aged Chianti

It’s that time of year where my taste buds start to convince me to put away the red and break out the white. Are there any other red lovers out there who just don’t seem to crave it as much in the warmer weather? Chianti is on the very light spectrum of red so I find that it’s much more satisfying in the heat.

I recently tried this Chianti, which was very drinkable alone although it would pair nicely with a big juicy cheeseburger. It has a light body and is fruit forward on the nose. This wine is aged in french oak barrels for about a year so it has a little deeper type of flavor than others like it. I think it’s a great option for summertime or even for the white wine lovers out there who might want to start getting more in to reds, XOXO.
