DRINK OF THE WEEK
27th October 2014
Extra Special Chianti Classico Riserva
Drinker Rating 90
Like all of the supermarkets ASDA are very careful about the wines that they brand with their own 'high end label'. They all have them, Finest, Taste the Difference, Exquisite, and ASDA's is Extra Special. They really can't be seen to be putting their name to a second rate product.
Of all the supermarkets I think ASDA's Extra Special is the most reliable range. This Chianti is such great value for such a good wine, spice and smoke support a generous black cherry backbone. Great Halloween wine.
