2015 Querciabella Camartina
2015 Querciabella Camartina: Tuscany, Italy
Elegant deep ruby red. Rich aromas of black and red berries including dark cherries, bilberries, ripe plum and tamarind. Notes of ivy, forest floor and freshly cut bark are intertwined with hints of leather, sweet tobacco and licorice. The full and silky body is framed by firm yet well-integrated tannins, lifted by excellent acidity. The palate confirms the nose supporting pronounced flavors of ripe black fruit enriched by nutmeg and sweet spices. A very long finish with pronounced savory notes.
Querciabella is a Tuscan wine estate that makes wines in both the Chianti Classico zone and in the Maremma Toscana. The winery has received high critical acclaim for its wines which regularly score highly among critics and competitions. Indeed, Antonio Galloni of Vinous Media has said that, “Querciabella stands head and shoulders above any other estate in Chianti Classico”.
