Querciabella Chianti Classico Querciabella 2010

Querciabella Chianti Classico Querciabella 2010

Sku: 027260

Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate, 89 Points
The 2010 Chianti Classico Querciabella represents a big change in direction from Querciabella, as it is the first vintage to be made entirely from Sangiovese, including fruit from recently acquired vineyards in Radda. Sweet roses, red cherries and licorice are some of the notes that emerge from the glass. The 2010 is really mostly about textural finesse. Floral notes reappear on the refined, understated finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018.

Other text
Querciabella is located in the hillsides of Greve, one of the most beautiful corners of Chianti Classico. Proprietor Sebastiano Cossia Castiglione, one of the most thoughtful and conscientious owners in Italy, has quietly sought to ramp up the quality of his wines in a big way. Castiglione has enlisted the services of Vietti's Luca Currado to help him reach a number of ambitious goals. Recently acquired vineyards that give birth to single-village wines will start appearing in the estate's lineup as soon as next year. These new releases are a step in a new direction, although 2010 was not the easiest of years, especially for the reds. The estate did not make its flagships Camartina and Palafreno in 2009.
