Occasional Wine Note: We had an opportunity to visit the Querciabella vineyard about 5 years ago and were blown away by their facilities, their vineyards, and their lineup of wines.


This small production Super Tuscan, Camartina, was a standout and we've been drinking it ever since. It's just a great blend of power and fruit from start to finish and a fantastic representation of how well French grapes have been integrated in Italian wine making.


Allocation: Spring 2023

  • Falstaff

    Critic Score: 97

    Bright ruby colour. Riveting nose with exquisite spicy notes, cinnamon blossom and clove, followed by cassis and damson. Full-bodied and vibrant, revealing many layers of vivid tannin followed by bags of juicy berries. 

  • Wine Spectator

    Critic Score: 95

    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. 683 cases made, 22 cases imported.
