A Very Nice Chianti Classico Riserva at a Great Price

"I first had this chianti at a local Albany restaurant and was told it was available locally. Only Empire Wines was willing to order it in any quantity I needed and did so in short order at a price that was surprisingly affordable. Although I have a major wine and liquor store around the corner from my home (which is not as accommodating), I will now make the 16 mile journey to Empire for their exceptional service and prices. Thank you.P.S. Just by luck when I went to pick up my order, I found a hard to locate small batch California vermouth I have search for, for years and it was just sitting on the shelf at Empire. Now I know I can buy it whenever I need Thanks again!!!!!!!!!!!!"
