Top Five Italian Sangiovese

1. Prestige Querceto Chianti Riserva (2005)

Next » 1 of 5
Average price: $73.54 from 1 store
Rather vibrant and focused on the nose with fine sage and fennel herb notes framing the core of lightly jammy strawberry fruits, with nuanced almond and smoke top notes and a hint of violet. This is still youthful, tight and bright. The wine is rather compact in the mouth with lovely ripe tannins adding volume. Not terribly large scaled, this offers a lovely, rich core of burnished cherry and strawberry fruit cut with a fine mineral tone. With air, gentle sweet tobacco, apple stem and almond notes emerge on the mid-palate and reveal greater depth on the moderately long finish. This is very well done. Quintessential CCR. 92pts
