Availability: In Stock

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 2014 Chianti Classico offers striking purity of fruit and terrific overall balance, especially for the year. Sweet red cherry, plum, spice and lavender are pushed forward. This is an especially fruity, mid-weight vintage for the estate's Chianti Classico, not to mention a commendable effort for the vintage. Right now, the 2014 is a bit raw and not fully formed - hardly a surprise for high-acid, cold vintage - but the depth of the fruit is promising. The 2014 has the highest percentage ever of Gaiole fruit since Querciabella expanded its estate holdings beyond Greve, while Radda was more problematic and therefore largely left out of the blend. The expressive savory/saline finish only adds to the wine's considerable appeal. - Vinous (2014 vintage)
