    The 2007 Chianti Classico Querciabella is a fragrant, perfumed red. Silky tannins frame a core of cherries, sweet spices and tobacco as this elegant wine opens up in the glass and puts on weight with air. In recent years the Querciabella has established itself as one of Tuscany's top Chianti Classicos, as it is again in 2007. The Querciabella is 95% Sangiovese and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2017.
