Grifone – Chianti Riserva DOCG – 2014 – Wine Review – Trader Joe’s

This is a medium-bodied wine which seemed a little harsh at first, but smoothed out once opened for a while. Mild tannins leave a mild earthy feel in the mouth.  Compared to the 2010 Grifone Chianti Riserva, this one is a little disappointing.  However, while not as good as the 2010 vintage, this is still a good red table wine pairing well with food.  It’s an acceptable sipper also, although there are more enjoyable ones, but not at this price point.

Price $5.99.


Il Valore – Chianti Riserva – 2006 – Marchese De Petri – DOCG – TJ – Wine Review


This is the first Italian DOCG wine that’s somewhat of a disappointment.  Not bad, but doesn’t live up to its brothers.


Gaetano D’Aquino Chianti Riserva – 2006 – DOCG


Seal and all, this is about the highest classification for wines in Italy.  e Garantita – guaranteed.  And it’s still only $5.79.
