Brilliant ruby red with a delicate and appealing bouquet. Dry and balanced, with a soft and elegant body. Pair with red meat dishes and cheese.
Alessandro François based the philosophy of his company on the production of some particular selections coming from a deep study of the vineyards properties. His aim is to raise the characteristics and the potentialities of the different grape varieties cultivated in different conditions. Following the philosophy of Alessandro François, the yield of production is limited, it goes from 45 to 50 hectolitres per hectar for the Chianti Classico and from 35 to 40 hectolitres per hectar for the crus.
"The 2008 Chianti Classico Querceto is an attractive, mid-weight Chianti with plenty of bright Sangiovese red fruit and lovely overall balance. The fruit turns a touch darker and richer as the wine sits in the glass, but this remains a fresh, vinous Chianti best enjoyed in its youth."
The Wine Advocate
"Bright red. Reticent aromas of redcurrant, cardamom and lily. Enters vibrant and fresh... flavors of redcurrant, dark cherry and minerals. The tannins are ripe but today this finishes a bit chunky; seems to need another year in the bottle to develop further complexity."
International Wine Cellar
A bit thin with a sour ending. Moderately improved on second day, but will not reorder.
