Chianti For Lunch Or Dinner

Chianti is one of the only red wines that I can drink at lunch or dinner. I love red wines in general but end up feeling very ill after most- hence even though I like the taste they don't usually score for me as it's just not worth the after effects.
For some reason though, Chianti sits pretty well with me - as long as I don't have too much of it. It has a nice round flavor that's not too bitter or dry.  Cheers!

The beauty with old world wines is that they are made in a way (generally lower alcohol than California wines) that allows you to enjoy them, bottle after bottle and not feel bad the next day.
