James SucklingThere's a freshness and brightness to this Chianti Classico with cherry and currant aromas and flavors. Full body, structured tannins and a chewy finish. Needs time to soften. Made from biodyamically grown grapes. The future of Chianti Classico. Better in 2017.

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.

Wine EnthusiastLeather, menthol, dark-skinned berry and light toast aromas slowly come together on this fresh, polished wine. The lithe, straightforward palate offers wild cherry, anise, orange peel and a hint of coffee while fine-grained tannins and vibrant acidity provide the framework.
