Querciabella was founded in 1974 by Giuseppe Castiglioni, an avid collector of French wines and the owner of the largest collection of Louis Roederer Cristal throughout Italy. The property is now managed and owned by Sebastiano Cossia Castiglioni who carries with him the fundamental philosophy of Querciabella. Cossia Castiglioni remarks “Querciabella is dedicated to producing among the finest Italian wines - as a winemaker and an avid collector, I believe that quality begins in the vineyard and with minimal intervention one can produce a wine that is truly a reflection of its terroir”. Querciabella wines are all estate bottled and made from selected grapes from the Southeast and Southwest facing vineyards located high on the hilltop of Ruffoli in Greve in Chianti.
The 2012 Camartina is bright, focused and nuanced throughout. This is an especially classy, understated Camartina that retains lovely freshness for a warm vintage. Lavender, rose petal, spice and plums give the 2012 its exotic aromatics and striking perfume. Medium in body and super-polished, the 2012 should reward consumers with a long drinking window. The blend is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Sangiovese. - Vinous (2012 vintage)
