We have never really been big white wine fans. For our wine budget, white wines typically taste way too acidic or sweet. So, for the first 3 months of our marriage, we stayed away from white wines and stuck to the reds. One day, we were shopping at Market Street, and they were giving free samples of a wine called Dr. L. Loosen. We changed our minds about white wine after tasting this one. I’m not a wine critic, so this review won’t be filled with descriptions of chestnuts or white peach flavors – but this wine was good. Really good. It tasted very well balanced – sharp but fruity, with a nice smooth aftertaste. Try this. You won’t be sorry
A really good price for such a good wine.
This wine will pair well with fish (tuna, swordfish, ect…), pastas (especially light pastas with lemon-butter or Alfredo sauces), or desserts. Honestly, you don’t really need a food excuse to drink this wine. Just drink it by itself, and build a meal around it if you want.
This is a Red Chianti from Tuscany (central Italy). It has a bold fruity taste that is not too dry. It has a “smokey” aftertaste, in a good way, if you know what I mean – that lingering flavor. But the flavor is not too strong or overpowering, like a lot of lesser expensive Reds.
This is actually a really good buy for $9.
Pair this with any Italian food (pastas, pizza, risotto, etc..), Steak, rich or hearty Soups, or Beef/Lamb/Pork (ribs, tenderloins, chops, etc…)
