True to the saying that “the whole should be greater than the sum of its parts”, Querciabella Chianti Classico Riserva is a blend of the finest Sangiovese grapes sourced from the estate’s vineyards in Greve, Radda, and Gaiole in Chianti.

Through our vegan and biodynamic practices, we nurture the unique qualities of each vineyard and carry them into the cellar with individual fermentation and barreling. Our micro-vinification process ensures that our Querciabella Riserva perfectly balances complexity, drinkability, and finesse. However, it’s our commitment to creating an exceptional and multifaceted expression of Sangiovese that sets us apart.

2011 was the first vintage we released as a designated “Riserva” since 1999. The reception from our clients and the press has been outstanding. Daniele Cernilli of Doctor Wine described the 2013 vintage of Querciabella Riserva as the “perfect Chianti Classico” when he awarded the wine 99 points; most recently, Querciabella Riserva 2019 was awarded the highest score in its category by Walter Speller during its extensive report of Chianti Classico Collection, precisely what happened with the 2018 and 2016 vintage. 

No animal products or byproducts are used in the production of this wine, making it suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
