2013 Castello di Querceto, La Corte, Tuscany, Italy


Categories: ,


Castello di Querceto is located near Greve, in the heart of the Chianti Classico area. Its land extends over 190 hectares of vineyards, olive, oak and chestnut trees. Built in Roman times, the castle was bought by the François family in 1897 who had moved from France to Tuscany in the 18th century. In 2009 the Schenk family became co-shareholders of the property.

Since 1978 the company is run by Alessandro François, his wife Marie Antoinette, and children Leah and Simon. The other key people behind Castello di Querceto are winemaker Giovanni Cappelli, who has been with the company for 20 years and has contributed greatly to its growth, and agronomist Giacomo Grassi, who has been the driving force behind the expansion of the area under vines.

This wine is made with Sangiovese grapes from vines with an average age of 40 years. Aged for 12 months in oak barrels, and with a further six months in bottle prior to its release. It is an intense and incredibly well-balanced wine.

Intense red fruit flavours mingle with sweet spice, floral and smoke notes. A well balanced palate with texture from the tannins and a fresh finish.
