Just have one quick question for the experts on this board. I've never cooked with a chianti before, how much does quality matter? Would an $8 bottle suffice, or do I need to throw a little more money towards it?
$10 or so is fine. It's a type of taste and while more expensive may be better I think you're fine with $8-$12 since you're using just a cup or so anyway.
FYI- Merlot works well also if you have that at home or can more easily find it.
Thanks Peeks, appreciate it good sir.
