Union Sacré Chipie Sangiovese 2020
Summer red. Pop it in the cooler. Perfect juice for pizza and dips. We know because we opened it at our kid’s birthday party and it was amazing with the overly salty, tepid cheese pizza and fly-buzzed hummus. These birthdays are supposed to be about the kids but somehow we make it about the wine. Not that we didn’t glance over and make sure they were having a good time - they were. The piñata was busted and the donuts-in-lieu-of-cake were devoured, and we sang “Happy Birthday” with the phone camera in one hand and the ice-cold Chipie in the other. As it should be. Armed with delicious parent juice that has aromas of cranberry and fennel and washes down the palate with strawberry, licorice, bramble and yes, Kool Aid. See? Kid party.
