“The 2013 Chianti Classico Querciabella is gorgeous. Sweet, perfumed and silky in the glass, the 2013 is simply exceptional. The flavors are bright and beautifully delineated, while the mid-weight, gracious structure speaks to finesse. With air, the 2013 becomes darker and broader in the glass, yet still retains considerable freshness. This is a superb showing from Querciabella.
 Grapes are carefully selected in the vineyards, 
 and harvested by hand into 8 kilo crates. 
 They are destemmed, never crushed, then conveyed 
 into temperature-controlled stainless steel vats, where 
 alcoholic fermentation and maceration take place. 
 Maceration lasts about 12 days. 
    After completing full malolactic fermentation, the 
 wine is transferred into barriques and tonneaux. 
 The oak is 100% French (5% new; remainder consists 
 of second and third-fill barrels). The wine is regularly 
 racked and tasted during the entire maturation 
 period, which may last up to 14 months. At the end 
 of the élevage, the best lots are selected through 
 extensive tasting and assembled to create the final blend. 
 After bottling, the wine rests for at least three months 
 before release.
