Querceto 2007 (red label) wine review by (PB)

Large wine chain BevMo was running this on their 5 cent for a second bottle sale. It is a bottle from the illustrious Tuscan producer which holds a special place in my heart having been to the home of this wine tasting it for the first time in the place of its home.

Nice garnet hue with some intensity, with wonderful classic Sangiovese aromas. Nice fruit with cherry on the nose and a deeper sense of spice.

Palate: Amazingly ready to drink with nice tannins though would benefit from another year. Nice bold Sangiovese flavors that was the perfect pairing with my homemade ravioli with mascarpone and prosciutto filling. $17 a bottle but 2 for a nickel more. Raise a glass!
