2007 Querceto Chianti Classico

January 5, 2011

Querceto Chianti Classico

The 2007 Querceto Chianti Classico was another wine that we got from Dusty’s Cellar as part of their “6 for $60” promotion. Each month Dusty’s puts together several different “6 for $60” sets for their wine club members – there’s a Club White, Club Red, Club Mix, and more recently Club Chardonnay and Club Pinot Grigio. Creatures of habit, we tend to go for Club Red in the colder months and Club White in the warmer months.

Of course, our son the Junior Sommelier is an avid cork collector, so sometimes we just choose the six with the fewest screwtops.

The Querceto was a dark ruby color. The nose made my mouth water slightly, with hints of rose petal, smoke, cocoa, strawberry, and something I’ve never gotten from a red before – a kind of orangey citrus. The palette was fruity and light, but with a slightly bitter finish. The tannins left my mouth a little dry. Maybe it’s because I’m still a beginner as a wine blogger, but this one just didn’t leave me with much to say.

If this came my way again as part of a promotion, I certainly wouldn’t turn it down. But priced at $15.99, where Virtual Vineyards places it, I would probably pass.
