Natalie's Score: 90/100

Very juicy acidity with a supple texture, this Italian red wine from the Chianti region offers black tart fruit, smoke, dried and earth aromas. This robust red wine is aged for 15-18 months in oak barrels and is made from Sangiovese grapes and offers a satisfying finish. Pair with a pepper steak.

Chianti Classico food pairings: roast beef, pasta with meat sauce, char-grilled sausages, steak topped pizza.

Reviews and Ratings

Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This Chianti has aromas of raspberry jam with floral notes, such as violet. It also has an earthy quality. This is a medium bodied wine that has loads of fruity flavours, mostly tart cherry as well as dark berries. The tannins are velvety and the acidity is crisp. It has good length on the palate.

Would pair nicely with pasta in a tomato sauce.

Tasted October 2017
Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Lots of campfire smoke, dried spice, cherry and earth on the nose and palate - that same tart cherry coupled with a savory herbaceousness and just a hint of mocha on the finish. Lovely on its own or on pizza night. Tasted October 2017.
Castello Di Querceto Riserva (2013) is a full-bodied Chianti Classico from Tuscany with ripe berry, dusty herbs, smoke and mocha notes wrapped up with mouth-watering acidity on the palate. Truly a full-bodied Chianti Classico with a satisfying finish and would pair perfectly with a pasta, rich tomato and meat sauce dish. Drink now. - Community Wine Reviews
