ABOUT THE PRODUCER
About La Querce Seconda Riserva Chianti Classico
La Querce Seconda Riserva Chianti Classico comes from La Querce Seconda’s pristine organic fruit, which grows on southern-facing hills of galestro soils made of loose marl and limestone. Hand-harvested at about 2.25 tons per hectare, the wine is left to ferment naturally in stainless steel before it is moved to a 10-year-old, 2000-liter French oak tonneau. The resulting wine is stunning, with classic structure and flavor showcasing Tuscany’s most important varietal: Sangiovese. A mature bouquet of ripe fruits, cherry, pomegranate, and violet shoot from the glass with an enticing elegance that foreshadows what is to come. A myriad of wild berries, raspberries, currant, spice, and slightly toasted notes come out on the palate and combine with a balanced tannic grip and clean acidity. A silky finish that goes on and on, showcasing the elegance that was alluded to from the aroma.
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. Niccolo 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.
