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

Our unique micro-vinification process ensures that our Querciabella Riserva perfectly balances complexity, drinkability, and finesse. It is this commitment to creating an exceptional and multifaceted expression of Sangiovese that sets us apart. By individually fermenting and barreling each batch, we nurture the distinct qualities of each vineyard, ensuring these characteristics are beautifully preserved and expressed in the final blend.

2011 was the first vintage we released as a designated “Riserva” since 1999. The reputation and acclaim of Querciabella Riserva have grown with each vintage, receiving outstanding praise from the press. Daniele Cernilli of Doctor Wine described the 2013 vintage 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, mirroring the success of the 2018 and 2016 vintages. With the release of the 2020 vintage, featuring a beautiful concentration and precision, the prestige of Querciabella Riserva continues to grow.
