97pts Decanter World Wine Awards 2018
Querciabella has been making Chianti Classico since 1974, and you will not want to miss the 2015 vintage. Talk about a phenomenal value winelovers; we say run, don't walk! They've crafted a gorgeous, well-rounded red with structure, full body and mothwateringly ripe fruit. Pour your first glass and maybe go Italian for round one: we love this sip-inspiring Chianti Classico with mixed antipasti like fried eggplant, fresh fava beans with pancetta, roasted peppers and Prosciutto. Be careful; you might not make it to the entree... If you're able to pace yourselves, this Querciabella will pair beautifully with lots of cheeses, red meats and tomato-based sauces. We love it with baked rigatoni with eggplant, peas and ground veal. On the woodsy, earthy side, it is fantastic with papardelle sauced with tomatoes, white wine, carrots and wild duck. An oven-roasted leg of lamb with potatoes will delight as well. As a final note, pour another glorious glass of this stunning ruby red and enjoy it with a subtly nutty, salty Italian Grana Padano cheese. La vita è breve. Bere Chianti Classico!

Decanter: "The 2015 is 100% Sangiovese, and represents a giant leap forward in quality for Querciabella - partly the result of the coming-of-age of their plant-based biodynamic viticulture which commenced in 2010. They also benefitted from a near-perfect growing season in 2015, and the result is a wine of wonderful purity showing clearly delineated aromas of focused, bright cherry with a hint of leafy freshness, spearmint, raspberries, cream and cinnamon. The palate is beautifully poised, with harmonious tannins, perfectly ripe fruit and bright acidity. Drinking Window 2018 - 2028." Feb 2018

Winery:  "Ample rain and cool temperatures in the winter were followed by dry, perfect spring conditions which lead to even bud burst throughout the valley. Summer was dry with sporadic rainfall. Heat spike early in the summer kept bunches small resulting in a lower yield and beautiful fruit concentration with lively acidity."
