Querciabella Chianti Classico 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"A new take on a past tradition, which culminated with the 1999 vintage, Querciabella Chianti Classico Riserva returns to the Querciabella range with limited bottlings in the best vintages. Following years of steady expansion throughout Chianti Classico, meticulous site selection and a rigorous micro-vinifcation regime have given rise to an historic single-vineyard Sangiovese project at Querciabella. The new Riserva, a blend of exceptional lots of grapes from the communes of Greve, Radda and Gaiole, is one of the fruits of an unprecedented effort led by Querciabella to identify the finest sub-zones for the cultivation of Sangiovese across the region." -Winemaker's Notes

100% Sangiovese Spicy on the nose with a hint of wood adding detail to the raw if not aggressive perfumes of frutti del bosco flecked with hints of seeds and spice adding real complexity. This is downright opulent in the mouth and punching way above its weight class with richness, depth of fruit and a refined quality that makes this a real standout of the tasting. the fruit, pure, lively and spiced on the palate with wild red berry, red cherry, and astringent lingonberry notes is wrapped around subtle mineral and herbal nuances with fantastic length, power, and freshness on the finish. 92pts
