Querciabella Chianti Classico Riserva 2018
The Querciabella Chianti Classico Riserva is a limited release, pure Sangiovese, produced and bottled only in the best vintages. Years of steady expansion throughout Chianti Classico, meticulous site selection and a rigorous micro-vinification regime have given rise to Querciabella’s historic Sangiovese project, and produced a series of outstanding single vineyard bottling's, including this Riserva. The grapes are all picked by hand before being transported to the winery where they undergo fermentation in 3-ton French oak casks. After malolactic fermentation, élevage is carried out in French barrique (20% new) for up to 16 months. No animal products or byproducts are used in the production of this wine, making it suitable for vegans and vegetarians. Enjoyable now. Will reach maturity five to six years after harvest and will continue to evolve for at least another fifteen years.
