‘Lustrous crimson. Pure raspberry with the polish of oak, but barely noticeable. Beautiful precision on the palate with raspberry, jewel-like acidity and fine polished tannins. Gorgeous length and style. 2022-2034’ – Walter Speller, JancisRobinson.com, 18/20

‘Fleeting hints of lavender and lemon verbena aromas give way to a beam of pure cherry in this sleek, intense and harmonious red. Taut, yet vibrant, with a long, lingering aftertaste of fruit, wild herbs and stony mineral elements. Excellent length. Best from 2024 through 2040.’ – Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator, 94/100

‘The 2018 Chianti Classico Riserva is a wonderfully polished and expressive wine. Dark cherry, spice, tobacco, cedar, dark cherry, leather and tobacco. Darker, virile and intense the Riserva retains the classic Querciabella mid-weight style. I imagine the 2018 will give readers two decades of very fine drinking. 2023-2038’ – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 93/100

‘A certified organic wine, the Querciabella 2018 Chianti Classico Riserva Querciabella sources its fruit from different vineyard sites in various villages of the appellation. Each is harvested and fermented separately. The wine offers steady balance with dark fruit, leather sweet tobacco and campfire ash. It creeps up in intensity the longer you keep the wine in your glass. 2022-2028’ – Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, 91/100

Producer information The story of Querciabella began in 1974 when Giuseppe ‘Pepito’ Castiglioni purchased a single hectare of vineyards on a Tuscan hillside. He was an industrial entrepreneur by trade but his dreams and passions were in producing wine. In the mid-1990s Pepito’s son, Sebastiano Cossia Castiglioni, took over the vineyards and took Querciabella’s reputation to new heights. He saw to it that Querciabella was one of the first wineries in Italy to convert to organic viticulture and was a pioneer in his biodynamic approach. Sebastiano’s passion for animal rights also led to the vegan certification of Querciabella. Today Querciabella’s vineyards span more than 100 hectares, located in Chianti Classico and Maremma and are planted with all the grape varieties that Pepito only dreamed of when purchasing that first hectare of vineyards.
