Decanter Recognizes Querciabella Gran Selezione as a Standout

We are thrilled to share that our Querciabella Gran Selezione 2019 has been praised for its finesse and precision by the esteemed Michaela Morris on Decanter Magazine. The tasting took place at the prestigious Chianti Classico Collection event in Florence in February 2024. Michaela’s insights and expertise highlight the exceptional quality and craftsmanship of our wines, reaffirming our commitment to producing outstanding Sangiovese.


Gran Selezione 2019 · Chianti Classico DOCG
“The estate’s third release, this Gran Selezione is among the top wines from Chianti Classico’s 2019 vintage. Just 4,000 bottles were produced from Querciabella’s site above 500 metres on the steep, stony slope of the Ruffoli hill. Decisive, linear tannins are carved with precision and accentuated by zesty acidity. I was lucky enough to try this on a few separate occasions and it just gets better with each sip.” 97/100 —MM


Riserva 2020 · Chianti Classico DOCG
“The 2020 bottling demonstrates the generosity and graciousness of the vintage’s growing season. Attractive pressed flowers, plum and red berries intertwine with subtle wood smoke. The palate brings in garden herbs and mandarin orange. The tannins are confident yet supple and sweet, culminating in a chalky grip. Invigorating and bright, this is quite tempting now – but there’s plenty more to reveal.” 93/100 —MM


Querciabella 2021 · Chianti Classico DOCG
“Produced since 1974, Querciabella’s annata has surely transformed over the decades but in recent years it has been one of the zone’s most consistent overperformers. In 2021, grapes were picked between 1-21 October, harnessing all the vintage’s concentration with the vivacity of the estate’s high altitude sites. Hints of smoke and terracotta lace through dark raspberry and black currants, as heady rose slowly amplifies. Tight-grained tannins are stitched seamlessly into the supple fruit fabric. There is such a pristine quality to this as it vibrates with scintillating energy.” 93/100 —MM
