Your Life: Tried and tasted.. FOOD AND DRINK.
DIRECTWine Shipments has a big selection of chiantis and Masi is a huge producer in Italy. Their Renzo Fattoria di Basciano Chianti Rufina 2005 at pounds 8.49 has a bit of Cabernet but still plenty of black cherries and spice.
FOR pure sangiovese try La Pieve Fortebraccio Chianti at pounds 10.49 for what Decanter called a "densely textured with soft cherry fruit" beauty.
INDEPENDENTS should have the single vineyard Mellini Chianti Classico Granaio at a shade under a tenner - 100 per cent sangiovese and plenty of those dark cherries.
M&S has Castello di Poppiano's Chianti Colli Fiorentini at pounds 9.99.
