Querciabella D.O.C.G. 2008 Chianti Classico,
$25.99, 92 points, was bought by Ben at the WineconneXtion and shared with a few of us.
Deep bright Cranberry color and a youthful clear rim, with an aroma of spice, earth, and a hint of butterscotch.
Flavors of tart cherry and red fruit within a medium body of good acidity and tannin made for a delicious partner to my Greek-style veggie-meatball super-sub.
The finish was long on spice with a bourbon hint of heat.
Okay, OK, I exaggerated when I said, "my faith is restored in. . . Chianti Classico." For the most part, I love these wines and am not timid when buying them.
Salute to buoni amici e buon vino!
