Querceto di Castellina

Belvedere 2007 - special label designed for the Swedish market.

Querceto di Castellina - Belvedere is available at Systembolaget from August 2010. The wine is a Chianti Classico Risverva DOCG produced in the heart of Tuscany. The blend is 85% Sangiovese and 15% Merlot matured for 18 months in new oak barrels.

SOIL TYPE: The type of terrain, medium-rich calcareous shale and shell fragments, allows for excellent water absorption and the roots of the vines to grow deep, soaking up substances necessary for their metabolism.

TASTING NOTES: The aromatic bouquet is ample and complex with the aroma of small concentrated fruits, delicate spices like cinnamon and pepper and sophisticated herbs. Upon tasting, it has a supple body, deep and encompassing, in which the tannins are classified with care, without a sharp edge but a generous aftertaste and persistence.
