Boston College and 2006 Querciabella Chianti Classico

Boston College breakdown - Boston College defines unpredictability in college basketball. Tyrese Rice can be unstoppable at times, hitting difficult shots with a hand in his face (see his 25 points in BC's marquee victory over UNC), but looks very average on occasion (e.g., his 4 of 10 for 14 points performance in a loss to Harvard just three days after the win over UNC). Depending on which team shows up, the Eagles could be a challenge or an easy out.

2006 Querciabella Chianti Classico - This particular winery can be very hit or miss. The 2005 vintage was not one of their best efforts, but this 2006 is full of fruit and tannin - drinking great now and shows a lot of promise for the next few years. Being a Chianti, it can be a bit fickle, but throw it down with some good food and it should be ready to bring its A game.
