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.

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this.
As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.
To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!
