Querciabella Camartina 2013

Opulent and nuanced, Camartina perfectly embodies Querciabella’s gift for finesse and elegance. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese this critically acclaimed Super Tuscan is only produced in optimal vintages, while small batch micro-vinification and an extremely limited bottling guarantee hand-crafted excellence. This silky smooth expression of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese embodies Querciabella’s quest for finesse, balance and sheer drinkability. The vineyards where the grapes for Camartina are grown have been organically farmed since 1988, and then fully converted to biodynamic techniques in 2000. The grapes are carefully selected in the vineyards and once at the winery they are de-stemmed, not crushed, then transferred into five-ton French oak fermenters. Afterwards, the wine is transferred to French barriques; 25% to 30% new oak. The different cépages undergo élevage for one year. At this stage, the best lots, selected through extensive tasting, are assembled into the final blend, which undergoes another year of élevage. After bottling, the wine rests for about six months before release and is released no sooner than 30 months after harvest. Depending on the vintage, it reaches maturity between 4 and 7 years after harvest but will cellar until at least 18 years after harvest. No animal products or byproducts are used in the production of this wine, making it suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
