Starting out shy, the 2016 Batàr has filled out beautifully while still retaining its bright, lifted citrus aromatics. Vibrant white flowers and lemon oil burst out of the glass with hints of chamomile, jasmine and mint. The palate is rich but with a lovely freshness that sets the platform for great ageing potential.
Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer
Querciabella was founded in 1974 by Giuseppe Castiglioni at the beginning of the Super Tuscan wine movement and is now in the hands of his son Sebastiano. A lover of fine wine, Sebastiano’s passion for great winemaking combined with his uncompromising vision has meant that Querciabella has quickly established itself as one of the leading wineries in Italy, earning acclaim from the world’s most discriminating critics.
Querciabella has vineyards located throughout Tuscany’s Chianti Classico and Meremma regions. Sebastiano’s strong commitment to the environment inspired him to convert the winery to biodynamics in 2000 and all of the wines are 100% vegan. Indeed, Querciabella has one of the largest biodynamic vineyard holdings in all of Italy. The full range consists of seven different wines, reflecting the diversity of Tuscan terroir.
