2019 Querciabella Chianti Classico
The 2019 Chianti Classico (100% Sangiovese) is laced with the essence of red/purplish berry fruit, spice, cedar and floral notes. Readers will find a classic expression of both the vintage and the house style in this super-appealing mid-weight Classico. Drink 2022-2034.

Plenty of sweet berry and cherry character with hints of stone and fresh mushrooms. Chocolate, too. It’s medium-bodied with a solid core of fruit and a chewy yet refined texture. Flavorful finish. Solid and very integrated. From organically grown grapes. Vegan. Drink or hold. 94 Points, JamesSuckling.com (November 2021)
Bringing together fruit from Greve, Radda and Gaiole, Querciabella’s annata provides a wide-angle panorama of the diverse Chianti Classico zone. The 2019 is a portrait of clarity and depth. It starts discreetly then doles out aromas of cinnamon, mint, incense, liquorice and black raspberry. Sophisticated and polished, the palate unfolds confidently and gracefully. The wood is well-integrated, as are the powdery, suede-like tannins. There's lovely intensity of violet and a brightness to the whole. Kudos to winemaker Manfred Ing. Drink 2023-2033.

Just mid ruby. Perfumed but shy nose with hints of stones. Supple, suave and elegant and with a full aromatic spread on the palate. Great polish and shine. Fantastic crunchy tannins. A real beauty. Drink 2022 – 2030. 18/20 Points, Walter Speller - JancisRobinson.com (March 2022)
