Querciabella Maremma Toscana Mongrana 2009
James Suckling Review<br/>Rated 91<br/>Clear aromas of blueberry and light jam. Full bodied, with silky tannins and a citrus, plum and berry character. Rich yet balanced and very pretty. Drink now or hold.<br/><br/>Mongrana is the quintessential expression of the colors, sights and sounds of the Maremma region: fruity and intense, fresh and embracing, the wine takes its name - and its character - from that of the noble family of knights. 50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot
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
AUD$25 from Prince Wine Store. A 50/25/25 blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. A small proportion of the wine is aged in barriques for ten months and this gives some element of tannin structure to this young fruity wine. Intense ruby colour, youthful aromas of sweet concentrated blackcurrants, hints of cloves and finely ground black peppercorns. Silky smooth, this easy drinking medium-bodied wine has racey acidity, fresh red berry flavours and light tannins. Long fruity finish. A really lovely wine for cool evening BBQ with chilli-marinated pork chops. Drink now – 2015. 89/100.

The 2009 Mongrana shows off an attractive pliancy and radiance to its red fruit that makes it an excellent choice for near-term drinking. Sweet floral and spice notes add an attractive brightness to the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014.
Mongrana is the quintessential expression of the colors, sights and sounds of the Maremma region: fruity and intense, fresh and embracing, the wine takes its name and its character from that of the noble family of knights depicted by the Italian Renaissance poet Ludovico Ariosto in his epic masterpiece Orlando Furioso ( Mad Orlando ).
