Chianti Riserva Gaetano D’Aquino 2012

25 May

My mother and I recently went to a movie night fundraiser to watch Mother’s Day. We entered a few raffles and won this sweet bottle of wine that IMG_9309came in a purse specifically for carrying and insulating bottles of wine. So this bottle of Chianti Riserva Gaetano D’Aquino 2012 vintage looks super fancy and super expensive, right? Well it fooled me, too. I learned from Google that it’s like $6 at Trader Joe’s. But jokes on them because it’s actually really frickin’ good wine. This is definitely the best tasting cheapest bottle of wine, especially if you consider it being free since I won it. It has 12.5% ABV and was very complex in flavor, bold but smooth, overall very interesting and enjoyable. I would even recommend this to a beginning wine drinker.
