"Mongrana" Maremma Toscana Rosso DOC 2019 - Querciabella

The most classic of Tuscans, Sangiovese, combines with the two internationals par excellence, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. This is Mongrana, a red wine proposed here by Querciabella. But there is more. Like all good wines from the Tuscan company, in fact, this Mongrana also comes from biodynamic agriculture. A label that, during the wine-making process, does not use animal products or their derivatives, and is therefore also suitable for those who follow a vegan diet. The must is spontaneously fermented using only indigenous yeasts, in steel tanks. Then, at the end of the transformation, the wine matures for a short period in small cement tanks until it is deemed ready for bottling. Ruby red in colour, the nose has clear sensations of black berry fruit, tobacco and leather. In the mouth, however, it offers excellent structure and a perfect balance between all its components. Fresh and mineral, this is the red wine that can accompany lunches and dinners with meat. Perfect with classic grilled meats, it also goes well with cured meats and medium-aged cheeses. Due to its vegan nature, it can also be paired with tasty vegetarian dishes.

His name is Giuseppe 'Pepito' Castiglioni, an industrial entrepreneur and lifelong wine lover. In 1974, driven more by passion than anything else, he bought a hectare of vineyard in Chianti. Thus began the story of Querciabella, which, in the space of a few years, grew exponentially, extending as far as the Maremma. The goal, of course, is high quality. After all, the models inspired are the elegant wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy. Querciabella, however, immediately has an extra gear. In fact, thanks to Pepito's son Sebastiano Cossia Castiglioni, a long process of conversion to organic viticulture began immediately. It was 1988 and Querciabella was one of the first companies in Italy to adopt this practice. Today, almost 50 years later, Querciabella is considered one of the most innovative realities in Italy. Today, the company can count on a total of over 100 hectares in Chianti Classico and 32 in Maremma. The vineyards, rich in biodiversity, have altitudes ranging from 300 to 600 metres.
