Hedonistic and elegant.

The Querciabella estate “stands head and shoulders above the rest, it’s as simple as that” according to Antonio Galloni. This mesmerizingly beautiful wine comes from their Sangiovese vineyards across the Classico zone. Querciabella has practised chemical–free organic viticulture since 1988 followed by a transition to biodynamics in 2000. Since 2010 Luca Currado, of Vietti fame, has been a consultant oenologist. The wine maker, Manfred Ing previously worked at Vietti under Luca and brings an emphasis of site-specific winemaking that has not been championed elsewhere in Chianti. 

"The 2017 Chianti Classico is bright, floral and beautifully lifted, with lovely red berry and rose petal character. Pliant and supple, with terrific balance, the Querciabella 2017 is one of the more refined, restrained Chianti Classicos readers will come across in this vintage, with Radda very much driving the personality of the wine in its aromatic and red fruit profile. The 2017 finishes with terrific energy and nuance. This is the second vintage in which most of the wine was aged predominantly in 500L barrels and 30HL casks." 92 pts, Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"Youthful ruby. Classy nose of sweet red fruit, oak and stones and hints of mint. Elegant, juicy and almost a little linear. A wine that contradicts the torrid vintage." 17 pts, Jancis Robinson

"This is a little jammy with lots of ripe fruit and both blueberry and chocolate character. Rich and flavorful, but still fresh and energetic. Shows the warmth of the vintage. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold." 91 pts, James Suckling
