Chianti, Tesco, 2012


Tesco Chianti 270414

I’m not sure how this got into the House … an acceptable bring nonetheless.

The label says is all “Simply” Chianti – Sangiovese from Piccini in Central Tuscan; fresh and fruity.

Tesco’s “Simply” philosophy is to present customers with a relatively small selection of wines featuring some of the most popular varietals with simple, easy-to-understand labels and sold at an affordable price.

Dad brought this to Sunday Lunch.

Great weather  – we were able to dine al fresco with all the McConkeys at the one table.

Classic Chianti from Tuscany. Silky smooth mouthfeel, complex subtle flavours.

90% Sangiovese, 10% Canaiolo Nero

Great aftertaste, highly recommended for red meat and cheese.

I now regret not decanting it.
