Querceto Chianti Classico Riserva 2003 wine review by (PB)


Fairly light cherry hue with light cherry and licorice bouquet with chocolate emerging.

Palate--Forthright and edgy but light flavors; I breathed this for another 1/2 hour yielding earthy cherry with a chocolate mid palate, light flavors and I believed this wine has peaked. It was actually a bit flat which is surprising for this vintage which was a superior one. I paid $20 at Sam's Club but it was a little disappointing. Could this be a "dumb phase" I have read about but don't know if I actually have ever experienced it? I have reviewed this wine in November of 08 and it was a brighter more lively wine.

Raise a glass of another 2003 Chianti at this price.
