ITALY - Querciabella 2016 Chianti Classico

'Sweet red berries, rose petals, mint and cinnamon lift from the glass in the 2012 Chianti Classico Querciabella. The perfume and purity of the fruit are both striking in a mid-weight, gracious Chianti full of near and medium-term appeal. It is remarkable to think how far things have developed at Querciabella over the last decade. The Chianti Classico was once dark, oaky and full of international grapes. Today, it is the natural beauty of Sangiovese the estate chooses to highlight.' ANTONIO GALLONI
