Personal Favorite

I usually don't drink red wines, but I absolutely love Santa Cristina, and I find a way to pair it with most of our meals. It's a lovely Toscana with a bold fruitiness and an extremely smooth finish with a slight, almost raspberry tart; much more so than most of the Chiantis I've tasted. Combined with a decent price point, I'd describe it as a bit of transparent sophistication without a swagger. I adore this wine.

Ran across this wine in the Delaware Total Wine. It was recommended as a good alternative to a Chianti. Turned out to be one of our absolute favorites. The value can not be beaten. This is a perfect wine to just sit down and drink alone or paired with food.
better than chianti!

About Italy

Italy, like France, offers a world of wine styles within a single country: dry Italian white wines ranging from lively and minerally to powerful and full-bodied; cheap and cheerful Italian red wines in both a cooler, northern style and a richer, warmer southern style; structured, powerful reds capable of long aging in bottle; sparkling wines; sweet wines and dessert wines.

The trademark of wines from Tuscany, and especially those from the region of Chianti, was once the fiasco. This straw-colored flask may carry associations of lengthy rustic meals out on the portico of a villa in the Tuscan countryside, but this romantic reverie must be interrupted with a burst of reality...
