Vintage: 2019
Region: Tuscany, Italy
Viticulture: Organic
Grape varieties: 100% Sangiovese

La Querce Seconda Chianti DOCG is the estate’s basic Sangiovese from their property vines that sit just outside the Classico borde. Pristine grapes in the purest form without the use of any wood for aging.  A resulting exuberance is present in the finished wine, with fresh aromas of bright cherry, purple flower, and wet stone. For not seeing any time in wood, the balance of grape tannins is lovely, offering delicious grip to accompany the bright red fruit aspect of the mid palate.

ABOUT THE PRODUCER

About La Querce Seconda Chianti DOCG

La Querce Seconda Chianti DOCG is the estate’s basic Sangiovese from their property vines that sit just outside the Classico border, and within the zone of Chianti Montespertoli. They take this opportunity to showcase their pristine grapes in the purest form without the use of any wood for aging. After hand-harvesting the vines, the fruit goes through its natural fermentations and aging only in stainless steel, and is bottled when Niccolò thinks the wine is ready to go to the market. A resulting exuberance is present in the finished wine, with fresh aromas of bright cherry, purple flower, and wet stone. For not seeing any time in wood, the balance of grape tannins is lovely, offering delicious grip to accompany the bright red fruit aspect of the mid palate. Enjoy this as a great afternoon sipper, or something to pair nicely with fresh and aged cheeses, or an assortment of pastas.

About La Querce Seconda

La Querce Seconda is a small, organic Chianti Classico family estate that is located between San Casciano Val di Pesa and Montespertoli in the northern part of the DOCG region. Niccolò Bernabei is the second generation of his winemaking family, and in 1995, he and Linda Sandkvist took the project to a more serious level. Now, their property stretches for about 45 hectares, covering untouched forests, olive orchards, a lovely agriturismo, and of course, naturally-farmed vineyards. As they are devoted to using only Sangiovese in their Chianti, the duo exerts continual efforts in the earth (a clay and sand mixture accompanied by old large stones) to make sure the vines truly express the terroir of the area. Naturally occurring yeasts, extremely low sulfur practices, and very old and large oak use mean the expression they can achieve from their beautifully-cared-for vines is extraordinary.
