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.

The owners are also proud of the lush forests that surround their vineyards on the Ruffoli and Radda hillsides, whose presence not only adds to the abundant biodiversity found there, but also offers protection against cross-contamination from conventional farms.  Monovarietal olive groves complete the estate, adding additional richness to the soil and giving a nod to the history and tradition of the Chianti Classico region.

Like the wild, untamed coastline that borders Querciabella's vineyards in Maremma, this wine Mongrana is lively, fruity, and intense. With lifted aromatics and charming drinkability, it is a perfect companion for pasta, white meats and panini, or with aged cheeses and cured meats. Made of 50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot.

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.
