Winemaker Notes

Deep, elegant, mineral-edged, this wine reflects its elegance and linearity, with notes of blossoms, wild red berryfruit, and crisp-edged wild herbs. It is at once lean, crisp, and flavour-rich on the palate, with remarkably fine-grained tannins and a protean, dynamic finish that crowns a memorably luscious wine. Significant cellarability.

James Suckling
A polished yet chewy red with plum, chocolate and berry character. Medium to full body, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Castello di Querceto 2013 La Corte (100% Sangiovese) is a super dark and extracted wine. Again, the wine seems to defy the physical limitations of the moderately pigmented Sangiovese grape. An inky black appearance is followed by thick aromas of blackberry preserves and candied cherry. The finish is not very long in persistence, but it is overtly powerful in terms of intensity.

The François family, which settled in Tuscany in the 18th century, has owned the Castello di Querceto estate since 1897. Of French origin, the family has produced such illustrious personalities as Giuseppe François, a noted mathematician, and Alessandro, an expert on archaeology and the discoverer of important Etruscan works like the celebrated François Vase, which is now preserved in the Archaeological Museum in Florence. Castello di Querceto and the land surrounding it are fascinating places steeped in history. In the past, the castle, erected as a lookout point on the Via Cassia Imperiale, one of the principal arteries of the Roman period, helped to defend the immediate area. Today, encircled by the green of the forests and the hills, it seems as if it had been constructed purposely to protect the invaluable heritage of its vineyards and olive orchards. Vines and olives grow on both sides of the valley of the Dudda, from the Sugame Pass and, beyond Dudda, toward Lucolena and Mount San Michele, which reaches a height of 400 to 500 meters (1,312-1,640 feet).

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
