This is a surprise under-rated wine from Puglia that will pair nicely with any rich red sauce or intensely-flavored meat (Roast boar would be great). Intense flavors, not a wimpy wine at all, and plenty of spice and a very good balance. We tasted and reviewed this wine on-air on 'Taste and Chat' and it was hard to surpress my delight. I was tempted to become a bit effusive about it, and it is certainly deserving of praise. After a re-tasting, I awarded this wine 92 points, certainly a 'best buy' at the price. I will make it a point to visit the Cantele winery on a future trip to southern Italy.

Cecchi Chianti Classico 2007
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $15.99
We tasted this wine live on air on 'Taste and Chat' on January 24, 2010, and the show archive is available through http://FestivalSteakAndSeafood.com. I found this wine to be less than expected, having tasted over 100 Chiantis and wandered through the region on multiple trips. Chianti has been re-emerging as a source for great wines, and this, while fresh and drinkable, was a bit thin in the mouth, and lacked the normal body and flavor of a Classico. Perhaps the less-than-stellar weather affected this 2007, and left the reputable wine-maker with little to work with. Since 2006 the elimination of Trebbiano in the blending of Chianti has generally led to bigger, more intense products, rather than thinner, lighter ones. Nevertheless, this would be a suitable wine for sipping with appetizers, fruits and cheeses for an evening's relaxation. I would not pair it with an intensely-flavored entree, or expect it to stand up well to a rich red sauce.

This is a nice, drinkable wine from Edna Valley, perhaps one of their better recent vintages, and offers nice spicy notes on the nose, and a nice mouth feel. Berries and jammy flavors complement to balanced acids, and create a quite harmonious finish.
