Which identically priced Chianti Classico DOCG should I buy, 2016 or 2017? 🤔
@kai this site gives a higher rating to the 2016 vintage: https://www.winespectator.com/vintage-charts/region/tuscany-chianti-and-chianti-classico
@kai This other site also recommends 2016:
@codewiz it's terrible but I've been drinking canned wine. It's the perfect serving size, and this rose I found pairs so well with my favorite butter that I can't pass it up 😂
@kai My instinctive reaction to canned wine was: 😝
But in fact, i don't think it would alter the flavor...
@codewiz I don't think it does but I'm sure it's a more commercial product than I might otherwise prefer.
How's the Chianti?
@kai Yes, it's quite good... a little sower (as reviewed). But now I wish I had bought the other one for comparison. I might have learned something about wine tasting...
@pikurasa So they say, but my palate is not refined enough to appreciate wines >5-6 years old. They taste sort of... stuffy. And yes, I know there are decanters, but the taste remains "old".
I guess I could get to like aged wines if I get used...
@codewiz As for me, I just look for a good price and a good picture on the bottle. 🤣
That being said, the best wine I ever had was aged wine. My aunt and uncle in Japan (long-story) served it to me and my mom when we stayed at their place the first time.
It was a really good wine. 🍷
@pikurasa Do you have recommendations for Japanese red wines? After 3 years, I still haven't made up my mind...
@codewiz The wine I had in Japan was from France, I think. The "Aunt and Uncle" lived in France for a decade or so.
Have no idea about Japanese vintage of red wine...
