Melini Chianti Borghi d'Elsa 2010
Cheap Chiantis tend to be either raw and practically undrinkable or extremely bland. To be fair, this one falls into neither of these categories. Allowed to breathe for a couple of hours, it's a pleasant enough wine, with up front tannins that may taste strange to the American palate. With the attached instant rebate coupon it's available for $4.99, so if you're looking for a cheap quaff, this is it.
