"This opens with oak and coffee aromas supported by a core of black fruit. The palate offers dense cherry, plum and vanilla flavors, with espresso and chocolate accents. Pair this with barbecued meats or mildly seasoned cheeses. "
Vinous Antonio Galloni
"Smoke, tobacco, incense, licorice and dark cherries waft from the glass as the Castello di Querceto's 2011 Chianti Classico shows off its brooding, inward personality. Distinctly powerful and rich, the 2011 shows a much more masculine side of Sangiovese, with slightly wild notes that linger on the finish. This hearty, intense Chianti Classico is made for the dinner table. Best of all, the 2011 is a screaming value. Brilliant ruby red. The bouquet is delicate and appealing. Dry and balanced, with a soft and elegant body. Pair with red meat dishes and cheese."
