2016 Querciabella Camartina
The 2016 Camartina is superb. As always, Camartina is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Sangiovese, all from Greve's Ruffoli district, where Querciabella is located. At this stage in its development, the Camartina is driven by Sangiovese in its red-toned fruit, aromatics and acid profile. The 2016 is vibrant, saline and full of energy. I am so intrigued to see how it develops in bottle.
Antonio Galloni - Vinous
Ripe, sweet black currant, black cherry, iron, leather and tobacco flavors mingle in this tightly-wound red. Balanced, dense and remains focused and persistent on the lingering finish. Decant now, or age another year or two. Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese. Best from 2023 through 2045.
Very pretty and precise with tight tannins and polish. It’s linear and compact with blackberry, blackcurrant and cherry character. Racy and polished. From organically grown grapes.
