WINE OF THE MONTH- OCTOBER

It should be common knowledge by now that I am always on the lookout for quality Tuscan reds, and the 2006 and 2007 vintages from that region certainly provide a lot of options, and many at bargain prices. I recently tasted the wine I am featuring this month with my dinner and was stunned by its complexities while fantasizing about what other meals I could pair it with, and immediately went out and bought more of it.

Castello di Querceto Chianti Classico 2007, 90 Points, $15, 15,000 cases produced

Aromas of ripe red cherry fruit, oak and touches of cinnamon, very floral on the nose as well. The palate expands with herbs and violet flowers above layers of crushed raspberry, wild berry and cherry stone. Firm, chewy tannins creep in late with a spicy cinnamon finish that lingers long and impressively. Complex and crying for food.
