Last year, as I was staying in Rome, stopping by a restaurant to have some authentic Italian food and wine, I realized I had never given Chianti enough credit. While it doesn't have the deep profundity of Brunello, its high-class cousin to the south, there are a lot of beautiful, honest, unassuming wines made in some of the world's most beautiful hill country.
Chianti is not so expensive wine compared to other wines from famous vineries. Despite its lack of deep aroma, Chianti has its own attraction. If you are looking for a good quality of exotic wine for reasonable price, pick up Chianti at market. It won't let you down.
