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.
Frank Sangiovese nose with cherry and iron. Lots of character, leaner than I’d expected of the 2011 vintage and rather classy. Will come into its own with food. No sign of oak either. Grainy tannin. Can be cellared and will improve. Looks like Querciabella outperforms in complicated vintages also judging from the 2009 vintage. Unobtrusive tannins and a little tart but fragrant on the finish. Real food stuff. - JancisRobinson.com (2011 vintage)
