so I gotta say. I've never been a fan of trader joes with the exception of a few things..anyway, I went this last weekend and saw this Italian sangiovese on the shelf for 3.99 a bottle..I thought I'd buy a couple to mainly use in a pasta sauce..very surprised how drinkable it really is..I think I'll go back and get a case

Bought this on your rec Doug, I've liked a few of their Panlonico offerings too but I like Chilean and Argentinian reds.

For Italian wines Sangoviese has always been a favorite of mine

Not too sweet white Zinfandel and butter go really well on chicken. Delicious when cooked on a flat top chicken philly style

Toss in some cooking sherry, especially if it's late in the game.
