Wine review: Frescobaldi Nipozzano Riserva Chianti Rufina 2010, Italy

Red blend
Food Pairing
Grilled veal chops

This is smooth, modern Chianti chiselled with a precision that might impress Michelangelo. It's also priced for those unblessed with Lorenzo de Medici's bank account. Medium-full-bodied, with a soft centre, it comes across with fresh cherry flavour and a bright, salty-dry finish. Versatile at the table, it would match especially well with a grilled veal chop; $2 off at $22.99 in B.C. till June 28, various prices in Alberta, $25 in Saskatchewan, $19.99 in Manitoba, $23.70 in Quebec, $15.55/half-bottle in Prince Edward Island, $28.98 in Nova Scotia, $25.49 in Newfoundland.
