Chianti Classico Riserva 2009 Querceto
In Italian “querceto” means oak grove, which is where the Castello di Querceto got its name. Nestled in a high valley near Greve in the Chianti Classico zone, the castle, which dates back to the 15th century, is surrounded by a grove of oak trees. Wine production is a legacy here and quality is a tradition. This Riserva is a superior quality wine on all levels. It received 90 points or more across the board including 93 from James Suckling who said "Such clarity of fruit to this Chianti Classico with black cherries and blueberries and sliced mushrooms. Full body, chewy and rich. Very structured. Like a Brunello." and 91 from the Wine Spectator who said "Though packed with fresh cherry, berry and tobacco flavors, this is also chewy, with a spice and cedar side that adds depth. A modern style, yet harmonious and polished. Best from 2014 through 2023" and Antonio Galloni points out the value saying "Another gorgeous wine for the money, the 2009 Chianti Classico Riserva emerges from the glass with savory herbs, tobacco, licorice and dark red cherries. Here the aromas and flavors are distinctly earthy, while the wine's structure suggests another decade-plus of very fine drinking."

I enjoyed the wine very much. It is a good Chianti that goes well with Italian meals.

Our first bottle had a light corky smell to the wine and a sharp edge. Almost as if it was the end run of bottling. It was not what we were expecting. The second bottle was very good and was as expected. Until we have a few more bottles the jury is still out on the overall quality of the case. Hopefully it was just one odd bottle.

what food to pair with this Chianti?
A shopper on Aug 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Since chianti is lighter than big red wines, it pairs better with lighter proteins and pastas, such as pork or chicken, which can lose their subtle flavors with heavier wines. It holds up less well with beef. It is wonderful with a good veal bolognese. It is a classic pasta wine, but better with red sauces than heavy cream-based sauces. Enjoy!
