2009 Luiano Chianti Classico vs. 2008 Quattro Mani Montepulciano: Both are fruity

july 24, 2011: this wasn't exactly apples to apples. but greg had baked a pizza, and we were wanting to explore more italian wines. so we uncorked this cute bottle of 2009 luiano chianti classico ($13.99) as well as a 2008 quattro mani montepulciano ($12.99). the chianti was 13.5 percent alcohol, with some fruit, light tannins. greg liked it a lot, saying it was smooth and not really dry. i thought the same thing. the quattro mani we compared it to was also fruity, with more tannins and acidity. 13 percent alcohol. greg thought the tannins on the quattro mani were more pronounced at the end. both are from winetree.
