Why we're drinking this
Classic! Made to drink with a plate of antipasto while the pizza cooks or pasta boils, then takes you and the famiglia straight through the main course. It’s not fancy, just good, honest vino.
Light, breezy red with that classic savory note of dusty cherry that’s the hallmark of Chianti. Here’s a clean, well-balanced wine that takes every mouthful of prosciutto, asiago, pizza or pasta up a notch. Prego.
