  • This Chianti Classico, a quintessential Tuscan wine, is produced using biodynamic methods. This means that the grapes are meticulously sorted prior to alcoholic fermentation in French oak casks. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged in French wooden barrels for 16 to 20 months. Some 10,000 bottles of Chianti Classico are produced annually.

    Sebastiano Cossia Castiglioni’s Querciabella domaine has fought its way to the top of the Chianti producers’ league. For too long this appellation had been producing wines for everyday consumption. By contrast, at the Querciabella domaine they have thought long and hard about how to produce truly great wines. This includes working with individual parcels, converting the domaine to organic practices in 1988 and introducing biodynamic methods in 2000. The wines are unparalleled in the Chianti region. They boast consistency, balance, precision and texture. Prices are still reasonable, making this a range to discover.
