Stellar review of Camartina 2015 on Wine Spectator Insider Weekly

Camartina 2015 shines on Wine Spectator Insider Weekly in a stellar review by Bruce Sanderson.

Wine Spectator senior editor and lead taster for Tuscany has reviewed Querciabella Camartina 2015 with 96 points, one of the highest scores within the Super Tuscan category.

Though somewhat tight, this red exhibits plenty of ripe fruit, sweet spices and refined tannins. The overall balance is there, and this is nearing a new phase in its evolution. The long, fruit-filled aftertaste picks up a saline element. Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese. Drink now through 2038. —B.S. (96/100)

Born during a particularly balanced vintage, 2015 is a wine of great refinement and intensity, one of the finest Camartina of the past decade according to many influential reviewers like Antonio Galloni (96/100), James Suckling (95/100) and Othmar Kiem (96/100). The list of the accolades goes on, check the dedicated score page to keep up to date.

To our great satisfaction, this review is the third in a row of extremely positive mentions of Querciabella wines by Bruce Sanderson. It came not long after we announced that Querciabella Chianti Classico Riserva 2016 scored 93/100 points on Wine Spectator:

A big Chianti Classico, with vanilla and resin notes from new oak wrapped around cherry, strawberry, iron and earth flavors. This verges on racy despite the breadth, with a dense swath of tannins providing grip on the finish. The oak is upfront and should be absorbed well over time. —B.S. (93/100)

Back in May, Querciabella Chianti Classico 2016 also scored 93/100, testament to the greatness of the vintage and our ability to deliver stunning varietal expressions of Sangiovese.
