Ombretta 2008 Chianti - ~$7

Fresh & Easy's Ombretta Chianti is aptly named: its small shadow can't quite cover F & E's other Italian offerings.  It has a lovely nose of blackberry and black soil that gives way to a medium-bodied palate of sourish cherry and dark earth.

Though it's a bit on the thin side relative to Fresh & Easy's Re Del Castello Chianti Classico, it's still a nice, solid everyday red and certainly attractive at ~$7 a bottle. 


Drinkability: 6.5/10
Price: 4/5
Total value: 10.5/15
