Wine Tasting with me
Description: Chianti is my favorite Italian wine of all time...well, until I come across another that goes down just as sweet. It's a Tuscan wine that is usually aged for 2 to 3 years. It has a deep dark red velvet color. "Tralcio Antico" means old branch in Italian and that is a fitting name because this wine has a smell of vintage wood to it, which I gather is the oak barrel effect. The taste is smooth and not light but also not heavy. A medium wine.
Price: 3 euros
Recommendation: I recommend drinking this wine after a busy day where you waited waaaay too long in an Italian post office line only to find out when you got to the front, you've been standing in the wrong line all along and you need to be in that line over there which is twice as long as the first one and by the way they close in a few minutes and the next 3 days are saint so and so's holiday and so the post office will be closed. Ya, this wine goes great with that day. Enjoy!
