Castello di Querceto Chianti DOCG 2019

The treasure of Tuscany

From the hills of Tus¬≠cany, Italy, the Castel¬≠lo di Querce¬≠to Chi¬≠anti is a deli¬≠cious wine with a fresh and fruity taste.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

The Chi¬≠anti by Castel¬≠lo di Querce¬≠to is fer¬≠ment¬≠ed for around 10 days at 28ňöC, and aged in stain¬≠less steel tanks.

Made main¬≠ly of San¬≠giovese grapes, this Tus¬≠cany wine comes in a ruby col¬≠or, and has a flo¬≠ral aro¬≠ma. Dry, and mild¬≠ly acidic, this Ital¬≠ian clas¬≠sic is well-bal¬≠anced, with notes of cher¬≠ry, rasp¬≠ber¬≠ry and red fruits, and sub¬≠tle hints of earthy, smoky flavors.

PREPA­RA­TION OR PAIRINGS

Chi¬≠anti goes great with a num¬≠ber of foods. Pair it with some bold cheese like pecori¬≠no to bal¬≠ance out its acid¬≠i¬≠ty, and some salty cured meats, like pro¬≠sciut¬≠to, to ease the sweet¬≠ness of the wine.

It also goes great with a lot of red sauce pas¬≠ta. Have a glass with your Bolog¬≠nese. Or if you pre¬≠fer even hearti¬≠er fare, this wine from Italy is excel¬≠lent with baked lamb, or a some deli¬≠cious¬≠ly grilled steak.

THE TIME­LESS PROTECTOR

The Castel¬≠lo di Querce¬≠to is an impos¬≠ing and his¬≠toric struc¬≠ture in the midst of the Chi¬≠anti Clas¬≠si¬≠co area. Built by Emper¬≠or Hadri¬≠an in 123 AD as a look¬≠out on one the main arter¬≠ies of the Roman Era, the Via Cas¬≠sia Impe¬≠ri¬≠ale, it stood tall until it was loot¬≠ed, burned and destroyed amidst the count¬≠less wars of that time, dur¬≠ing the lat¬≠ter part of the 15th century. 

The Cas¬≠tle was rebuilt in 16th cen¬≠tu¬≠ry AD, and has, since 1897, been owned by the Fran“ęois fam¬≠i¬≠ly. It has become the emblem of the com¬≠pa¬≠ny. It now stands guard again, but this time over the vine¬≠yards and olive groves of the sur¬≠round¬≠ing area.

Storage Instructions
