Querciabella stands head and shoulders above any other estate in Chianti Classico. It’s as simple as that” Antonio Galloni

99 Points - Daniele Cernilli (Doctor Wine Guida Essenziale ai Vini d’Italia 2017)

Varietal and elegant. Youthful, tense and aristocratic palate; great tense body, subtle tannins, lively and refined with a thin and very long finish. A perfect Chianti Classico!

Taste & Aroma

Score:92

The 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva is a very beautiful, understated wine built on grace and finesse. Sweet floral and tobacco notes give the 2013 its aromatic lift. Precise and sculpted on the palate, with lovely juiciness to match, the 2013 is super-expressive today. This is another bright, vibrant wine with tons of Sangiovese character. The 2013 needs time for the tannins to soften, but it is very nicely done.

Region

The Tuscan wine region is situated on the Tyrrhenian coast, in the centre of Italy. Like much of the country it has a rich wine making history. Tuscany also has a number of appellations within the region including over thirty Denominazioni di origine controllata (DOC) and at least 7 Denominazioni di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG). Red grape varieties thrive here taking 70% of the region’s production. The Italian Sangiovese grape is king here and the quality of the wine it yields depends heavily on the exposure and particularly on the altitude at which it is planted. From Tuscany, we recommend either the smooth yet full bodied Tenuta San Guido Guidalberto 2012 or for something a little more decadent, the 2006 Fattoria Petrolo Galatrona made from 100% Merlot from the Petrolo Estate.
