As the rebel of the zodiac, you're always looking to make a statement and shake things up. More traditional wines won't cut it—you need something as daring and unique as you, Aquarius.

That's why a delicious glass of Chianti is the perfect fit. This dry red wine is only produced in a small region of central Tuscany and is famous for its savory notes due to the oak barrel aging process used to preserve the wine. And it guarantees that no two glasses you sip will ever be the same.

Pisces: Rosé
