Thumbs Up for Querciabella New Releases

When it comes to scores and reviews, this year is the gift that keeps on giving. Today it is the turn of Antonio Galloni, one of the world’s best-known and most respected wine critics. These excellent results are a true recognition of our team’s great work, both in the vineyard and cellar.



Palafreno 2019 · 98/100
“Stunning, not to mention one of the greatest wines I have ever tasted here. Silky, plush, and exceptionally vivid in the glass, the Palafreno possesses breathtaking beauty that captivates all the senses. It’s a real head turner.” —AG


Camartina 2018 · 94+/100
“Dark-fleshed fruit, leather, spice, menthol and grilled herbs emerge with some coaxing. The Cabernet is quite evident in both the flavor profile and overall structure, which likely explains the wine’s general feel today.” —AG


Batàr 2020 · 93/100
“Laced with hints of tangerine oil, spice and pear. Light tropical accents appear later, adding gorgeous nuance throughout. The move towards high elevation vineyards and picking earlier yields a Batàr endowed with terrific freshness and plenty style.” —AG


Gran Selezione 2019 · 96/100

“Silky and beautifully layered, the 2019 is a dark, translucent beauty. This hillside parcel in Greve’s Ruffoli district yields a wine of tremendous distinction. Powerful and yet elegant, the 2019 Gran Selezione is another winner from Ouerciabella.” —AG


Gran Selezione 2018 · 96/100

“Dark cherry, plum, mocha, leather and sage all saturate the palate. There’s tremendous creaminess and depth here. I can’t wait to see how 2018 ages, as it is a pretty big wine by Querciabella’s standards.” —AG


Gran Selezione 2017 · 95/100

“The 2017 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione is ample, rich and quite seductive, which is to say very much in the style of the year. Dark red fruit, spice, leather, tobacco and incense all allure. This is so expressive today.” —AG


Riserva 2019 · 92+/100
“The 2019 Chianti Classico Riserva is a terrific wine made from vineyards in Greve, Radda and Gaiole. Dark and powerful in the glass, the 2019 offers up dark-toned fruit, spice, leather, savory herbs, tobacco and earthy notes. I would give it a few years to soften.” —AG


Querciabella 2020 · 92/100
“Bright, fresh and nicely lifted, with terrific precision and energy lending quite a bit of character. Bright red Sangiovese fruit, spice, and a touch of blood orange are front and center. This is the first vintage that includes fruit from a parcel in Greve’s Lamole district.” —AG


Turpino 2019 · 93/100
“The 2019 Turpino, Querciabella’s top wine from Maremma, is understated and yet quite expressive. Black cherry, plum, mocha, spice, and licorice are nicely lifted by a good dose of Cabernet Franc in the blend. This aromatic, layered red holds quite a bit of appeal.” —AG
