An Italian gem, chianti is a red wine that's never shy about sharing its affection. Chianti is traditionally seen in a squat bottle enclosed in a straw basket, called a fiasco. Chiantis have medium-high acidity and medium tannins with fruit notes of cherry, plum, and raspberry. Young chianti has floral and cinnamon aromas. Aged chianti is more robust, with aromas of tobacco and leather. Chianti pairs with a variety of dishes, including pasta, red meat, poultry, and vegetables.
