Incanto Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2005

Member Review by InWineTruth:

Available at some Northern CA. Trader Joe's locations, this value has a deep black cherry hue with aromas of dried black cherries and plums, a little old leather and forest floor lie under focused, dark stone fruit flavors, balanced by good acidity throughout its lingering finish. Standing up to tomato based pasta and pizza. A steal at $10, if you can find it!

Trader Joe's special - nice wine with good solid acidity. Bitter cherry notes. A little earth and chocolate. Paired really well with baked ziti (tomatoes and beef). Decent wine, well priced.

I had the 08. Similar to other descriptions of the 05 but a more dried fruit ( again cherry and some cran) and arid earth. I think the aging really does it some favors. Still a great value but only a decent wine.

Definitely a great Trader Joe's special. Can't beat this Chianti Classico for $10. Paired well with roasted root vegetables and kielbasa.

Full bodied for an inexpensive chianti

Went well with spicy italian sausage. The cherry hit the palate toward the end to cool the spice of the sausage.
