Folnari Chianti 2012, $7.99
Badia a Coltibuono Chianti Classico 2009, $15.99A good pairing is a good pairing, no matter who or what the duo.
When paired with the salty, nutty, hard but crumbly Parmigiano Reggiano these wines made for a classic coupling. Like Bacall and Bogart.
Like Bacall the wine was smooth and supple. Like Bogart the cheese was powerful and dominating. Together they formed a delicate and delicious balance.
