Querciabella Chianti Classico 2000 wine review by (PB)

The meal at (NW’s) continued and this wine was opened yielding its chocolate bouquet, spicey on the palate, tight, tasty but needs air.

There is leather in the aroma big time with some subtle basement smells (???) And dried cherries with just plain nice flavors. We had this with baked figs stuffed with Gorgonzola and walnuts served on parsley and prosciuto. The finish is tart, short but pleasant. ($22) Raise a glass to Tuscany–always!
