Querciabella has been on a roll over the last few years. I can’t say enough good things about these wines, all of which merit your serious consideration. Querciabella doesn’t make a big deal about the fact that their vineyards are now biodynamically farmed, but then again they don’t have to? The wines speak for themselves.....  ANTONIO GALLONI

This remarkable estate is the life-long passion of Sebastiano Cossia Costiglioni and before him his father, Guiseppe, who planted the first vines at the estate as a hobby in the early 1970's. Giacomo Tacchis and Guido di Santi were bought on in the formative years as winemaking consultants and directed the estate to biodynamics.

Today the estate's technical direction is overseen by another of Italy's greatest winemaking talents in Luca Currado of famed Piemontese producer, Vietti, while day-to-day running of the estate's vineyards and winemaking is handled by a passionate team led by Dales D'Allesandro and Manfred Ing. New investment in the cellars over the past years will also continue to push the quality of the wines to new levels and maintain Querciabella at the top of the Chianti tree.

Raised in concrete to retain varietal character and freshness the name of the game here is drinkability and Mongrana delivers that in spades with its cohort of plump, juicy, red and dark fruit characters, lovely perfume and gently giving tannins. It's built to over deliver on character while remaining fresh and inviting, it's most at home on the table with food, family and friends. This is a perennial favourite with us for its sheer deliciousness and the 2017 is no exception. A Little darker than last year's iteration but also with a dollop more lip-smacking fruit. Great little wine. ROSCOE
