    Chianti Classico DOCG 2016 (BIO) <br>METHUSALEM 6 Liters in OWC

    Wonderful scent of raspberries, notes of tobacco and violets. Enormous density, compact structure, robust tannins, youthful and fresh temperament, paired with a certain finesse. Ends long with notes of juicy red berries. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Glowing ruby with a glowing core. Elegant and expressive nose of rich cherries and blackberries, reminiscent of fresh figs in the aftertaste. On the palate very fine, melting, with tightly woven tannin, builds up in many layers, great fruit and freshness in the final." Falstaff

    "Lustrous, mid ruby. Complex, cool and perfumed nose. Supple, mouth-filling cherry and cranberry fruit that strikes a perfect balance with the tangy acidity and ripe, chewy tannins. Hedonistic and elegant." Jancis Robinson

    "The 2016 Chianti Classico is an explosion of floral-infused aromatics and red-toned fruit, all in the super-classic mid-weight style that is such a signature of the Querciabella house style today. Rose petal, lavender, mint and sweet raspberry fruit are pushed to the forefront. This is the first vintage in which more than half of the wine was aged in larger format oak ranging from tonneau to cask. Vineyards in Gaiole and Greve form the core of the blend, with a touch of fruit from Radda. The 2016 has enough freshness to drink well for another decade plus, but I would give it a few years in bottle for the bright acids to integrate a bit further. There are a number of pricier wines in Querciabella's range, but I am not sure any of them can match the Chianti Classico for pure pleasure. What a lovely wine it is." VINOUS

    "Shows real concentration for a Chianti Classico with notes of brambleberries, blackcurrants, black cherries and baking spices. Full body, grippy tannins and loads of fruit. But this remains refined and elegant, all thanks to the precise acidity." James Suckling

    "Saturated black cherry and plum flavors are framed by earth, iron and tar notes in this dense, powerful red. Shows depth and a solid structure, but this is tightly packed and should be forgotten about for another three years." Wine Spectator
