Supermarket wines – Lidl Chianti 2019

The little brother of Lidl’s superb Chianti Riserva. A bit simpler but still nice for a midweek quaffer.

Easy drinking Chianti done well. Classical cured meats meet dried cherries aromatics, a lighter, but well balanced palate which does not lack tannins. Open for business, doesn’t even need decanting, though it just gets better with air. Drink now, or before 2023.
