Chianti is a great holiday season wine because it is so versatile. Having folks over for a drink before heading out on the town? Ordering pizza to take the pressure off all of the other cooking you have to do? Or are you welcoming dozens of guests to enjoy that delicious rib roast you’ve been slaving over? You can’t go wrong with Chianti in any of these situations.
And before you start to worry that a good bottle of Chianti will come at a cost, let us introduce you to Nipozzano Chianti Riserva 2013. This 91-point winner is just $14.99 a bottle- and if you buy a case of 12, we’ll knock off 15%, leaving you to pay just $12.74 per bottle. These prices are far and away the lowest in the country. Now is the time to stock up – every time you open a bottle, you’ll be glad you did!
If James Suckling and Robert Parker ever disagreed it wasn’t over this wine- both gave it a 91 point rating. Nipozzano comes to us from the Frescobaldi family, which has a winemaking history dating back 700 years. Then as now, Tuscany’s sweeping rows of vines stretch across rolling hills. This is where this wine was born, inspired by tradition and a rich artistic heritage. The Frescobaldi ancestors would not have been disappointed with this Sangiovese-based blend with bright red fruits and just the right amount of earthiness working together to produce an easy drinking, approachable red blend that you’re sure to love. I’d pair this with pizza, grilled meats, and, of course, friends. Give it another 5 years and you’ll be even more impressed. ~ Peter Ryan, Vine & Table Wine Buyer
We managed to secure just 25 cases of the 2013 vintage, aged to perfection at an absolutely bargain price- if you lived in New York you’d be paying around $21.99 or more. Buy a case or two before it all disappears.
