A cheap wine and first chianti

After work, we ventured over to Total Wine our weekend wine pickup. We always want to try something new, and we did that tonight. Ian picked up a $3.99 Double Dog Dare Californian cab. It was very surprisingly good for as cheap as it was. I wanted to try something totally new, so I got an Italian chianti- Fratelli Bellini 2008. I really really liked it. I had it with pizza, and liked that it brought out the spiciness in the wine and the pizza. On first tasting the chianti, I jokingly called it the Jack Daniels of wines, because the spiciness of the wine resembles Jack to me.

That's all we tried today.
