Querciabella Chianti 2016 March Offer
2016 Chianti Classico – A Modern Day Benchmark
The top 2016s have turned out to be just as extraordinary as I had hoped they would be. The 2016s are distinguished by their superb aromatic presence, silky tannins, layered fruit and fabulous sense of harmony. ANTONIO GALLONI
Readers can look forward to a positively stunning set of wines from Querciabella this year and in the near future. Winemaker Manfred Ing and his team continue to fine tune the approach here, but frankly, what comes through most is the tremendous passion behind everything at Querciabella. The 2016s benefit from a very even growing season. That effortless grace comes through in majestic, soaring wines that are likely to become benchmarks here. ANTONIO GALLONI
If you were putting a list together of the great wines of the world to pair with food and that provide the most drinking pleasure it would need to include Chianti and I think it may top a few people’s lists.
Querciabella’s Chianti Classico is probably a wine that a lot of our customers are familiar with as it remains one of our most popular wines every year on release. We recently received another shipment of the 2016, which we regard as the finest example Manfred and his team have created to date. As Galloni has pointed out 2016 is “a modern day benchmark” and this is abundantly evident in this wine.
It’s all sumptuous red fruit, perfume and subtle spice, the overall impact is one of gorgeous drinkability. While the 2015 was bold and upfront the 2016 is the very best of what classic Chianti should be. There is no question that this will improve in the cellar but I challenge anyone to keep your hands off the stash once you have opened the first bottle, it just begs to be drunk now.
I don’t think there is a point in beating around the bush here, if you are stuck at home and you need a wine that will suit just about every situation then Querc is it. Ideal with a wide array of food. Great to drink on its own or while you are preparing the food. Perfect to share with those around you. This is the best example of one of my all time favourite wines to drink and right now I think everyone could use a little more comfort wine in their lives.
To add to just how good this is we are offering the wine at $40 a bottle in a six pack which is essentially 25% off making this benchmark Tuscan beauty an irresistible deal.
