Wine Find: 2008 Castello di Gabbiano Chianti Classico Riserva

OK, pardon the movie reference: This "good kee-AN-tee" would go well with any excellent cut of simply prepared red meat, and maybe pasta dishes as well. (Turkey? Maybe.) It's a full-bodied, structured red wine with a complex mix of black cherry, earthy and herbal flavors, with a touch of chocolate. It's drinkable now but should mature beautifully over five to 15 years. Not cheap, but worth the price.

From: Chianti Classico, Tuscany, Italy

Price: $23

Serve with: Fava beans, of course
