I've never really liked to drink chianti, only cook with it. However, DH and I found an inexpensive chianti from the Tiziano vineyard in Prato, Italy, in the Tuscan region. My favorite part of Italy, apart from the coastline (either side, doesn't matter).

Runs around $7-8/bottle out here. Not too bad. Dry, very pleasant. Doesn't leave that nasty dusty taste in your mouth like some chianti.

Good accompaniments: sharp cheddar, strong cheese like blue, roquefort or stilton. Grilled meats.

Great in stew! I added some to a lamb stew and it was wonderful.

Thanks for that info Alysia - I'm not a big fan of Chianti at all so I don't bother buying it knowing I won't like it. At least now I know of a particular vineyard that makes a decent one so I will give it a try.
