Walter Speller chooses Querciabella Riserva 2016 as one of the best wines at this year’s Chianti Classico Collection.
In his report on Jancis Robinson’s Purple Pages, Querciabella Riserva is rewarded with 18/20, the highest score across all categories.
Greve in Chianti. 100% Sangiovese.Beautiful, concentrated ruby. Quite closed and backward, but subtle and complex on the nose. Bags of concentrated fruit and yet super-elegant palate. Vibrant with perfectly built, long, fine tannins. Refreshing and complex. (WS)
Speller tasted also 102 Chianti Classico 2018s and 2017, concentrating on the just-released wines. Querciabella Chianti Classico 2017 is again among the best wines, showing great balance between opulence, freshness and firm but not overwhelming tannins.
Greve in Chianti. 100% Sangiovese.Youthful ruby. Classy nose of sweet red fruit, oak and stones and hints of mint. Elegant, juicy and almost a little linear. A wine that contradicts the torrid vintage. (WS)
