Querciabella Chianti Classico 2016
Sangiovese
Italy

Average review score: 93,5

Wine spectator : 93    Vinous : 92+   Robinson : 17,5/20   Suckling : 93
 

An affordable Sangiovese of good quality. The wine slowly enters its period of maturity. We can already taste it, but waiting another year will finish integrating the acidic frame.
A very beautiful scent of roses and lavender gives way to black fruits (plum, cherry) mixed with flamboyant raspberry. The wine is concentrated, deep, powerful and the acidity keeps the freshness and elegance of the wine. We are caught up and we keep coming back to it. A very beautiful wine. 

To be enjoyed as an aperitif with a Bruschetta or to accompany lasagna, a pasta dish or a risotto.

 

Wine spectator : 93/100 

Saturated flavors of black cherries and plums are framed by hints of earth, iron and tar in this dense and powerful red. It shows depth and a solid structure, but it is very tight and should be forgotten for three years. Best consumed between 2024 and 2040. 8,330 cases manufactured, 2,181 cases imported.

Vinous : 92 + / 100 

The Chianti Classico 2016 is an explosion of floral aromas and red fruits, all in the super-classic style that is today the signature of the Querciabella house. Rose petals, lavender, mint and sweet raspberry are highlighted. This is the first vintage where more than half of the wine was aged in large format oak ranging from barrel to barrel. The vineyards of Gaiole and Greve form the heart of the blend, with a touch of Radda fruit. The 2016 has enough freshness to drink well for another decade, but I would give it a few years in the bottle for the sharp acids to blend in a bit more. There are a number of more expensive wines in the Querciabella lineup, but I'm not sure any of them can match the Chianti Classico for sheer pleasure. It is a very beautiful wine.

Jancis Robinson : 17.5 / 20 

Greve in Chianti. 100% Sangiovese.
Glossy, medium ruby. Complex, fresh and fragrant nose. Supple, palate full of cherries and cranberries that strike a perfect balance with pungent acidity and ripe, chewy tannins. Hedonistic and elegant. .

James Suckling : 93/100

Shows real concentration for a Chianti Classico with notes of blackberries, cassis, black cherries and cooking spices. The body is full, the tannins are persistent and the fruits abundant. But it remains refined and elegant, all thanks to the precise acidity. Drink now.
