Castello di Querceto 'Cignale'

This is a classic “super-Tuscan”.  It is made on a single 4 hectare plot in the heart of Chianti Classico that is planted with 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot. The grapes are harvested by hand and fermented in temperature-controlled vessels. It is aged in barrel for a minimum of 18 months, and then aged in bottle for 6 months before release.  It shows a classic nose of cassis and toast, roast coffee, clove, cedar, and ripe cherry. It is a wine that will keep well for 20 years from the vintage and a testament to Bordeaux blends made in this sunny part of the Mediterranean basin.
