Querciabella Chianti Classico 2010
89 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): 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. (Jun 2012)
Through bidynamic viticulture, we celebrate the nature and history of our terroir, and we respect and exalt the quality of its fruits. Sebastiano Cossia Castiglioni
The nose showed youthful cherry and spice with crushed fall leaves and a hint of cranberry. On the palate, it was rich yet balanced with refined structure and focused red fruits. The finish lingered on with notes of cranberry and fine tannin. This wine was just a baby and will likely be a stunner in another few years.
