Querceto Chianti Classico Riserva 2003 wine review by (PB)


Sour cherry aromas and pipe tobacco with a hint of chocolate but the wine is cold. Breath and warm it up;
Palate--cherry with slight evergreen mid palate, nice!
Fresh Sangiovese flavors; a mature wine with a touch of anise emerging. This is a nice wine; mature and tasty! It's a bit pricey at $22 but a nice treat. Raise a glass!

From admittedly little experience, I seem to find a lot of Chianti that falls around $18-22, and each is decent. I've yet to be "wowed" by any.

the rufinna tan & gold, as well as antinori res seem better than most chiantis. the step up to brunellos shows big difference, but cost is too high. what is best chianti for you to date?
