Querciabella Chianti Classico 2013
VinousThe 2013 Chianti Classico Querciabella is gorgeous. Sweet, perfumed and silky in the glass, the 2013 is simply exceptional. The flavors are bright and beautifully delineated, while the mid-weight, gracious structure speaks to finesse. With air, the 2013 becomes darker and broader in the glass, yet still retains considerable freshness. This is a superb showing from Querciabella.
Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva Querciabella reveals a deep and layered presentation of dark fruit. It offers a quick succession of dried blackberry, cassis and rose hip. Spice, leather and moist chewing tobacco give the wine a larger sense of dimension and weight at the back. This pretty Chianti Classico Riserva closes with bright acidity and elegant endnotes of dried mint and balsam herb.
Wine SpectatorRich cherry flavors are underscored by a firm structure in this intense, powerful red. Tightfisted tannins carry the finish for now, but there is ample sweet fruit and lively acidity for the future. Best from 2018 through 2028. 200 cases imported.
