Red Wine Sangria

A couple days ago I made this rose sangria that I wanted to make another sangria for dinner tonight. Instead of using a rose wine, I used a Chianti instead and it's equally delicious. Add some chopped fruit for additional color and flavor and you've got yourself a delicious cocktail perfect poolside!
