Deep and brilliant ruby red, full-bodied, intense and harmonious. Dry and strong with prolonged impact on the palate.

Food matches: elaborate meat dishes and aged cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"A blend of sangiovese with cabernet sauvignon (35 percent) from Greve in Chianti, this grows in a ten-acre vineyard that rises to 1,400 feet. The wine has a gentle complexity, its softer tones of mushrooms and forest floor trapped by ferrous tannins, giving it the edge of iron shavings. It opens with air, the fruit fresh and lasting, the flavors expanding as if to predict a long life ahead. "

"The 2004 Il Querciolaia (65% Sangiovese, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon) is a supremely elegant wine laced with layers of ripe, perfumed fruit earthiness and herbs, all of which are framed by silky, ripe tannins. This polished red offers outstanding balance in a refined, sensual style, even if it is somewhat compact at this stage. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2022. "
