Final tasting of a week in Tuscany with visits from the coast to the hills of Chianti Classico. This is Manfred Ing (@bottleofgrapes), the supremely talented, rugby-loving South African-born winemaker @querciabella. He has made his home here in Ruffoli for the past seven years. Few people can speak so eloquently and so confidently about the intricacies of making wine in Chianti Classico. His tireless pursuit of terroir runs right through the whole range of wines; and his knowledge of Chianti’s different communes is what sets Querciabella apart. Unlike many estates, proprietor Sebastiano Castiglioni owns sites across the region in Greve, Radda and Gaiole, enabling micro-vinifications and detailed interpretations of variety/site. Their remarkable single-vineyard project, artfully orchestrated by Manfred and agronomist Dales D’Alessandro, is perhaps the pinnacle of winemaking in the region. The wines simply get better and better and are proof, yet again, that 2014 is a beautiful vintage for those who had the fortune and foresight to be selective. . #querciabella#chianticlassico#greveinchianti#gaioleinchianti#raddainchianti#talent#winemaker#wine#chianti
