    Beringer Private Reserve Chardonnay 2008
    Sold Out $31.99
    2012 vintage available for $34.99
    A balanced, modestly oaked Chardonnay. I would not rate it as high as Parker; maybe 91. Enjoyable.

    Querciabella Chianti Classico 2006
    Sold Out $31.99
    2010 vintage available for $24.99
    Parker gave this a good (91) rating. I found it a bit hard and closed-in. It needs 2-3 years of age. It will be a 91 and is well-made and certainly worth the price. Incidentally, I found it in the half-bottle at Chiaroscuro Restaurant in SF, at about $40. We did not order it because we already had tasted what we bought and thought it has not reached its prime. We liked the restaurant very much. They serve wonderful gnocchi. The chef, Alejandro Campatelli, is from Rome. We told him the gnocchi were the best since we had lunch at the Caffe Pantheon in Rome.
