Querciabella Batar 2016 is one of Italy's iconic white wine. A 'white Super Tuscan'. This blend of 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Blanc is indeed Burgundian in style if tasted blind. Medium + intensity of ripe apples, ripe pear and citrus on the nose. Good acidity. Almost full bodied. Great vibrancy of ripe fruits with good minerality. Superb texture and balance. Medium+ finish. Drink now till 2030.
If you are looking for a limited production (only 1,250 cases made!) iconic Italian white wine, you MUST consider this!
