Honest Grapes - Querciabella Chianti Riserva
Querciabella Riserva is the optimal result of the estate’s commitment to site selection. A superior Chianti Classico where the nuances of each vineyard meld harmoniously in a uniquely faceted expression of Sangiovese.
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.
