Querciabella

The Querciabella vineyard, which is located south of Florence, is in the heart of the Chianti Classico zone in the municipality of Greve, and is now one of the most respected wine producers in Tuscany. The vineyard was established in 1974 by Giuseppe Cossia Castiglioni. The company, which is now run by his son Sebastiano Cossia Castiglioni, consists of around 70 hectares of vineyards. Another vineyard with 32 hectares was also acquired in the picturesque coastal landscape of Maremma in 1997. The operator proudly points out his connection to nature, which is why he has exclusively concentrated on organic, dynamic winemaking since the turn of the millennium.

Turpino Toscana Rosso IGT

WinemakerQuerciabella
RegionTuscany
Grapes 40% Cabernet Franc, 40% Syrah, 20% Merlot

Winemaking

The three grape varieties are harvested by hand and then individually aged for a period of 16 months in French barriques, consisting of 20% new wood. The grape varieties are then blended in cement tanks before the finished wine rests in the bottle for a further year prior to release on the market.

Our tasting note

Dark, almost impenetrable ruby red. The Turpino - Querciabella's top wine from the Maremma region - is elegant and yet highly expressive. The nose is dominated by aromas of black cherry, plum, mocha, spices and liquorice. Wonderfully balanced on the palate with flavours of pepper, tobacco and Mediterranean herbs. Powerful, round and soft with a long-lasting finish.
