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 2011 Turpino is a blend of fruit from Querciabella's Chianti Classico and Maremma estates. Dark red and black-toned fruits meld into spices, sweet herbs, licorice and menthol as this juicy, expressive wine opens up in the glass. Ideally, the 2011 is best enjoyed over the next few years, while the fruit retains its resonance. The 2011 is all about depth and balance. - Vinous (2011 vintage)
