Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2016/2017
Since 2010, in keeping with the owner’s vegan principles, Querciabella has practised ‘cruelty-free biodynamics’ – only using non animal-derived products at every stage of wine production process. Today, it is one of the largest biodynamic and organic estates in Italy.
Organic, Plant-based Biodynamic and Vegan.
No animal products or byproducts are used in the production of this wine, making it suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
Founded in 1974, Querciabella, or ‘beautiful oak’, is notable for the choices made by owner Sebastiano Cossia Castiglioni. Located in the very heart of the Chianti area on the Southern side of Firenze, the estate was a pioneer in sustainable viticulture, converting to organics in 1988 and biodynamics in 2000.
Brilliant ruby-red. Aromas of violet, ripe cherries, earth, oak and a touch of incense. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and powerful and enriched with rosemary notes.
Well-integrated tannins, great texture and excellent freshness. Very long finish with a hint of iron.
Querciabella Riserva shows the dashing side of Sangiovese with a magnificent body and structural components.
Concentrated and vibrant, this wine suggests a dish that lets its complexity shine like vegan Eggplant Parmigiana or Braised Cannellini beans with escarole and Beyond Meat® sausages.
Querciabella Chianti Classico Riserva is the perfect blend of the estate’s best parcels of Sangiovese from vineyards in Greve, Radda and Gaiole in Chianti. Through a rigorous micro-vinification regime, we are keen to explore and exalt their minute details to bring our varietal expression of Sangiovese to a superior level.
Our refined ability to blend harmoniously single Cru wines is paramount in crafting a Chianti Classico Riserva of great complexity, drinkability and finesse. True to the saying that ‘the whole should be greater than the sum of its parts, we blend Sangiovese from Greve where vineyards range from 350 to 550 metres a.s.l., with grapes from Radda’s high altitude stony sites and Gaiole’s limestone-rich soils. Every plot has different nuances brought out by our vegan biodynamics and then carried through into the cellar with individual fermentation and barreling.
