Querceto Chianti Classico Riserva 2004
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.
