Ruffino Chianti 2008

Nothing flashy here, but I’d call this a solid Chianti to go with any Italian food. If it has tomatoes, garlic, olive oil and cheese, this wine will pair up nicely. It’s essentially a punched-up version of the house wine from any Luigi’s or Dom’s or Whoever owns the Italian restaurant in your home town. When you ordered that 500 ml carafe of house wine, this is what you wanted–not that cardboardy grapejuice throatburner your waiter dropped off. Upfront, this wine is big and juicy, but it fades pretty quickly–however, sip it quickly and who cares.
