Located in the high altitude village of Greve in the Chianti Classico zone, Querciabella produces this ultra-modern style of Chianti. Grapes are sourced from their own biodynamically farmed vineyards and and the wine is aged in French oak barrels for up to 14 months. The winery practices a proprietary farming regime known as cruelty–free biodynamics, which bars the use of animal–derived products from all phases of grape growing and winemaking. This 100% vegan approach to biodynamic viticulture is the key to producing wines of exquisite quality and marked territoriality. This Super Tuscan blend is 50% Sangiovese, 25% Merlot and
25% Cabernet Sauvignon. A small percentage is aged for 10 months in French oak. A previous Top 100 Selection, James Suckling scored this 90 points saying "Fresh and clean wine with dried cherries and citrus fruit. Medium body, firm tannins and a medium finish. Needs a little more in the center palate to be outstanding. Made from biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold."
I was disappointed in the wine. I purchased this because it is a vegan product. Compared to other vegan wine. This wine fell short on flavor, taste and finish. Even after decanting the wine let me down.
