Chianti

Chianti is made primarily from the Sangiovese and Canaiolo grapes. Chianti is a famous red wine of Italy, which takes its name from a traditional region of Tuscany where it is produced. It used to be easily identified by its squat bottle enclosed in a straw basket, called fiasco; however, the fiasco is only used by a few makers of the wine now; most Chianti is bottled in traditionally shaped wine bottles. Low-end Chianti is fairly inexpensive, with a basic Chianti running around $10 CAN for a bottle. There are many higher end, sophisticated Chiantis being made recently, however, and these are sold at substantially higher prices.
