WHAT: San Michele Chianti Colli Fiorentini 2005 (white) Rating: NNNN
WHERE: Tuscany, Italy
WHY: It’s certified organic and offers up the pleasures of a traditional Chianti – drinkable but rigorous. Great for robust food pairings. Or just gaze at the beautiful label portraying St. Michael, aka field commander of the army of God, looking kind of fey despite his black wings, black armour, wicked sword and ominous orb.
PRICE: 750 ml/$17.95
AVAILABILITY: At selected Vintages outlets as of March 29 (product #900258)
