It’s always exciting when the wine world witnesses the genesis of a new region, and, with many winemakers tapping into its enormous viticultural potential, there is a real buzz about Maremma. This territory has been thriving with life and trade since the Etruscan and ancient Roman times. And wine played a large part in luring enthusiasts to its shores.
Querciabella arrived in Alberese, Grosseto, in the late 90s. Here is where we trialled biodynamic viticulture before applying it to the rest of our estates, working with a range of international grape varieties yielding traditional and innovative styles. Our breakthrough in Maremma came in 2005 with Mongrana Rosso, a deceptively simple expression of Sangiovese, Cabernet and Merlot, followed a few years later by Turpino, a barrel-aged red blend, sumptuously rich and spicy.
Finally, enamoured with the intensity of flavours and that subtle hint of saline minerality that characterises the region’s white grapes, in 2020 we created Mongrana Bianco, a Vermentino-based wine that mirrors the defining traits of its red siblings. Made with the same minimal intervention, it perfectly illustrates the qualities we seek from the Maremma: restrained power, coastal freshness and the purity of fruit which is our hallmark.
