2016 Chianti Classico, Querciabella, Tuscany

The 2016 Chianti Classico from Querciabella is spectacular. Notes of orange peel and roses on the nose, with crunchy cherries and a hint of spice. On the palate there are wild strawberries and mulberries, and such refined tannins and freshness. Incredibly long, focussed and balanced: this punches well above its weight.

Agricola Querciabella

Charismatic, enthusiastic and opinionated owner Sebastiano Castiglioni has made Querciabella one of Tuscany’s outstanding producers. He’s vegetarian, and this outlook informs his management of the estate. Farmed organically since 1988 and fully biodynamically since 2002, it’s now the largest biodynamic estate in Italy. Farming like this requires attention and commitment to quality, and the results speak for themselves.
