Grifone Chianti Riserva 2012

3g

Bachelorette is in full swing this summer.  Chris’ friend Eileen likes to bring wines that are not over the top price wise.  It is fun to try something that is low-budget.  Many times she has brought some really good wines at a great value.  You should never judge a wine based on the label or price tag.  There are so real values out there in the less than $10 range.

On the back of the label, they proclaim they choose the best grapes for this wine.  At this price range, I am not sure that is possible.  Or, they have hundreds if not thousands of hectares of vines.

For the price, it is a pretty good bottle of wine.  I rated the Grifone Chianti Riserva 2012 three glasses.  If the bottle was priced over $10 it would be a two glass rating.

Life is too short to drink crappy wine.  Expand your palate and keep trying.
