Querciabella Mongrana 2016
The name Querciabella means 'beautiful oak', a reference to the beautiful oak trees lining this great estate in Tuscany. With 69 hectares (171 acres) of prime Chianti Classico vineyards – located in the communes of Greve, Radda and Gaiole – and 32 hectares (79 acres) in Maremma on Tuscany’s unspoiled Etruscan coast, Querciabella's vineyards represent the largest extensions of biodynamically farmed (certified organic) vineyards in Italy. This contributes extraordinary biodiversity to local and surrounding ecosystems and serves as a sanctuary for thriving numbers of honeybee colonies.

James SucklingLove the aromas of plums, cherries and currants with hints of flowers and undertones of dried flowers. Full body, round and silky tannins and fresh and bright finish. A blend of sangiovese, merlot and cabernet sauvignon. Needs two or three years to come together, but already beautiful. From biodynamically grown grapes and vegan.
Wine SpectatorEloquent and harmonious, featuring black cherry, black currant, violet, vanilla and graphite aromas and flavors. A dusty cocoa note emerges on the extended finish. Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2030.
