Querceto Chianti Classico Riserva 2004

Had a couple of treasure halls in the last month, this Chianti came from one of the earlier ones. We enjoyed it with some semi-spicy marinara sauce over pasta shells with some grated Romano cheese.  (I find it useful to know how the wine was paired, it makes a big difference)

On the high side of medium bodied, this ruby/garnet colored Chianti was quite lovely.  It was nicely balanced, had enough tannins for a little structure, was dry, and had dark fruit that lasted on the palate.  It was certainly ready to drink, but had enough tannins to lay down for a bit (though we never really do that - drink 'em if you got 'em).  This Chianti probably could have stood up to a bit of steak with no problems.  Highly recommended.



  1. Your first wine review! I will note this for my wife's sake... I know nothing about chiantis - Cuanto costa?

  2. NH state liquor store regular price is $25, I got it on sale for $12. Most excellent for the sale price, reasonable for the regular price.

    Not sure why it took me so long to do a wine review. We do consume wine on a regular basis.
