    (FONTODI Chianti Classico) 375 Dear Friends, I know it's taboo to have bottles of wine rolling around in your car but many of the new models on the market have interesting innovations such as temperature controlled glove boxes and attachable/electric chill boxes that can be stored behind the passenger seat. I have the perfect accompaniment to just such an innovation: Fontodi's 2006 Chianti Classico in half bottles. This is the ultimate picnic wine for the on-the-fly gourmand/vinophile - it is small and easily toted to inaccessible picnic locations such as Cala Blanca on Ibiza or the top of the 7th Heaven Express at Blackcomb (it will fit nicely into the new cooled glove box of a car as well). While small in size, there is no sacrifice of quality here - this will satisfy any discerning palate with a top-tier beverage in 375ml format instead of the usual mass-marketed selection. In addition, Chianti Classico pairs with a variety of foods so not to worry if you are unaware of what they may be serving at the Telluride mid-mountain lodge - you will be drinking in style if you stash one of these in your parka. For those of you that wish to stay closer to home, this makes for a perfect choice when you can't seem to find anything in the cellar or a full 750ml is too much to open. From a great vintage, this organically produced 2006 Chianti Classico delivers a mouthful of fruit, extract, tannin and length - it is far closer to a Riserva (as it usually is) but the extra oomph from 2006 is immediately apparent: Good things do come in small packages. ONE SHIPMENT ONLY - Fontodi is sold out of small format 2006 and hardly any 375ml's came to the US: 2006 Fontodi Chianti Classico 375ml Thank you, Jon Rimmerman Garagiste Seattle, WA Italy3467
