Querciabella, Mazzei, La Spinetta & Villa Cafaggio - Tuscany

Querciabella stands head and shoulders above any other producer in Chianti Classico...and it is truly impressive to see what Castiglione and Currado have managed to achieve at this historic estate in Greve.
— Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"This is a terrific set of wines from Querciabella and winemaker Manfred Ing. The flagship Camartina and Palafreno, are stellar. These days, I find almost as much pleasure in the Chianti Classico, a wine that delivers serious quality and pedigree for the money. I also had a chance to taste the 2016 and 2015 single-vineyard Sangioveses, wines that won’t be released for some time. The 2016s are of course very young, but they have tremendous color and aromatic intensity, while the 2015s exude density while also remaining faithful to their origins. Proprietor Sebastiano Cossia Castiglioni deserves all the credit in the world for putting together the team to execute on his vision for making world-class wines that are aligned with his broader philosophical goals of sustainability. These wines are simply gorgeous. That’s all there is to it."
— Antonio Galloni, January 2018

A long lasting bond unites the Mazzei family with Tuscany and wines since the XI century. Ser Lapo Mazzei is the author of the first known document to use the "Chianti" denomination in 1398; in 1435, when his granddaughter Madonna Smeralda Mazzei married Piero di Agnolo da Fonterutoli, the holding became part of the family's estate. Since then, for 24 generations, the Mazzei family produces wine at Castello di Fonterutoli, which even after its recent expansion still remains the beating heart of the company.

"The Mazzei family was among the first to embrace the Gran Selezione category of high-end Chianti Classico. Their 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Castello Fonterutoli shows the sharpness and detail that wine is supposed to evoke in the best vintages. It opens to a dark garnet color and mid-weight texture. There is ample muscle and power here, but the overall emphasis is on grace and elegance. You really taste those authentic Sangiovese flavors of wild cherry, forest berry, blue flower and crushed rock."
