Does Italian Red Wine Taste Funny?

Louise Z. | Sep 25, 2002 05:41 PM

Maybe I'm nuts, but I have had the distinct impression on several occasions when drinking italian red wine (often but not always a moderately priced chianti) at a nice italian restaurant that the wine has a funny taste -- a little like sherry, or port, or vermouth. A slightly fortified taste maybe. I have noted this to my dining companions who usually nod politely but look at me funny. Am I the only person in the world who thinks this about italian red wine?
