Very nice Chianti here. Get on it. Made from cooler vineyards up on the hills of Tuscany. Its like Adele singing your favorite song on the piano. It looks pretty good, has some great raspy depth and packs a cute little zip. When you’re done chasing pavement, serve this with spaghetti and meatballs.

Volpaia Giovannella Stianti Chianti Classico 2008, D.O.C.G., Tuscany, Italy: True character of Volpaia's 2008 Chianti Classico is a pretty, mid-weight offering informed by tobacco, flowers, herbs and cherries. As is often the case in cooler years, these high-altitude vineyards tend to yield a more ethereal style of wine. Still, this Chianti Classico finds its balance nicely with time in the glass. It is a model of restrained elegance. My note: Perfect for tomato sauce. sun-dried tomato and baked fruit with a mouth-watering juiciness, smooth texture.
