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 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva is one of the more reticent wines of the vintage. There is good depth and structure in the glass, but the tannins are a bit firm, whole the wine is quite unyielding. It will be interesting to see if the 2015 opens up with time in the glass. My impression today is that the tannins may be a bit too big for the wine's mid-weight frame. We will see. - Vinous (2015 vintage)
