Lookin for something different
Hello fellow wine lovers , if I may ask for some help in finding a new red wine to try
To give some back story on me im currently 31 yrs old and didn't start drinking
Wine untill my late twenties around 26/27
I have typically found i like cabernet Sauvignon , Malbec and pino noir
but I'm getting a Littel bored , I have tryed merlo and didn't not like it all , too oaky
Any suggestions? I'm open to anything
So. Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec tend to be darker, bolder thicker red wines than pinot noir.
If you want more wines in the pinot noir type category, try Beaujolais (from the gamay grape).
If you want a little deeper than a Beaujolais, try Spanish wines from Rioja or wines from the Cotes de Rhone in France.
If you want a super darky, syrupy red - try Amarone.
How much money do you usually spend on a bottle? Have you tried any Italian wines?
Chianti (made from the Sangiovese grape) goes well with tomato-sauced foods & pastas. Barbera is another very drinkable, medium-bodied red wine from Italy. You should be able to find good examples of both wines for well under $20 a bottle.
Umm i can be a cheap ass lol, i wont usally go above $20 and that can be for 2-3 bottles, I love wine it just can be so expensive! THE CHIANTI sounds very very interesring to me, I have had a chianti on two occasions ones at dinner very inexpensive I belive, but dont remember if i liked it or not (husband brought it home) and at a tasting about five yrs ago and it was a $70 bottle that tasted like paint thinner!
Ok maybe i should claify a bit, most merlots that i have tryed r just way to dry for my tast, im from a large suberb of chicago which is also has a large wine drinking population, most of which is either a kenndell jackson, woodbridge or yellow tail. The stores here sell what most in the area drink which has made it very difficult to try something new the establishments wont carry it or take a risk.
Also im limited in budget , i cant spend over $25-30 for wine , which probably has limited me. It
seems at least from were i am from anything different is just way to much $$,
