Querceto Chianti Classico 2009 Wine Review (NW)
Rich and spicy notes of black cherry and blackberry on the nose
Full bodied on the palate
Dark fruit finish with good length and notes of savory herbs
More and more Chianti Classico wines are taking on a dark and extracted style, and this one shows those qualities. The fruit is dark and the texture is rich, accented by savory herbs and spice. It should stand up to rich food and be considered a reliable buy at $13 or so. The Chianti Classico Riserva by Querceto is another one to look for as an alternative- priced a few dollars higher. Raise a glass!
