Top Five Italian Sangiovese

1. Chianti Classico Riserva Castello di Querceto (2005)

Next » 1 of 5
Previously available for $29.95
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
