Over the weekend my husband and I enjoyed a bottle of Quartetto Sangiovese 2000. I use the word 'enjoy' with an element of surprise, because we had pretty low expectations for this 11 year old bottle from the Clare Valley. Light in colour, the medium body wine still had an earthy fruit character, a bit of acidity, some tannins and the familiar savoury and restrained spice notes that are the hallmarks of Italian Chianti. Well cellared bottles will probably drink well for another few years.
