WHAT: Castellare di Castellina Chianti Classico 2010 (red)
WHERE: Tuscany, Italy
WHY: It's got a pretty label with lots of helpful information on the redwing (Turdus iliacus), comes from Tuscany (everyone loves Tuscany, right?), it's a classic style of wine, tastes really good, isn't crazy expensive, is widely available and organic: giddy-up! And by "tastes really good" I mean notes of black cherry and dried herbs, with restrained fruit, a traditional defining hint of bitterness and bracing short tannins. Cue the Q.
PRICE: 750 ml/$18.20
AVAILABILITY: At most liquor stores (product #267260)
