Tuscan wine bottles

A Chianti wine scene from the Italian Nights Website.

The evidence continues mounting that 1995 was such a good year in Tuscany that even relatively low-end models like this one show exceptional style:

Cecchi 1995 Chianti Classico ($8.99)
Clear garnet color. Good fresh black cherries on the nose and palate, with pleasant nuances of tar and smoke; bright acidity ties it together. Simple wine, good quaff, good with food. Importer: Excelsior Wine & Spirits, Farmingdale, N.Y. (Nov. 7, 1997)

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
