A lovely Chianti Classico that you must try! Good typicity and most importantly delicious.
Querciabella, in Italian, means “beautiful oak” and their vineyards in Ruffoli and Radda are surrounded by them. A beautiful balancing act of crisp, inviting acidity, pure varietal red fruits (cherry) 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.
Highly rated by Wine Spectator 93 points and James Suckling 93 points.
Food Pairing: Roast pork knuckle (the good acidity and lovely red fruits will be a knock out pairing with this), Chinese styled roast duck or duck/pork rillettes.
Region: Chianti Classico
