Atop a hill in the Comune di Greve in Chianti sits the Querceto estate, named after the nearby oak forest. Amidst the oaks and olive groves lie the vines that are the source of the superior wines of Castello di Querceto. These fields are known for the key role they played in Tuscany’s “new wave”, introducing the use of international varietals in what would come to be known as Super Tuscans. Such an accomplishment is hardly surprising from the family and winery that helped to start the Consorzio del Chianti Classico at the beginning of the 20th century.
The renowned single vineyard wines of Castello di Querceto allow consumers to sample this historic Tuscan terroir. Crafted using generations of winemaking experience, these wines are magnificent examples of the international taste profile of the Super Tuscan movement. For the Francois family, Castello di Querceto is not only a family legacy, but a family passion. A respect for the land and a dedication to quality resides in every bottle of this prestigious wine line.
