Querciabella Chianti Classico 2016

The centerpiece of Querciabella’s winemaking operations since the winery’s debut, Querciabella Chianti Classico has consistently ranked at the highest levels of critical acclaim while delighting wine enthusiasts the world over. Querciabella’s Chianti Classico represents the pinnacle of high-altitude, perfectly exposed Sangiovese fruit. A beautiful balancing act of crisp, inviting acidity, pure varietal fruit flavour and character deriving from sourcing the grapes from top sites in three of the the denomination’s best sub-zones. A wine and food lovers’ delight. After completing full malolactic fermentation, the wine is transferred into barriques and tonneaux. The oak is 100% French (5% new; remainder consists of second and third-fill barrels). The wine is regularly racked and tasted during the entire maturation period, which may last up to 14 months. At the end of the élevage, the best lots are selected through extensive tasting and assembled to create the final blend. After bottling, the wine rests for at least three months before release. No animal products or byproducts are used in the production of this wine, making it suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
