Color: intense ruby red with garnet reflexions Bouquet: full and well expressed Flavor: dry, austere, with elegant tannins
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 91 points - Red brick color. Notes of strawberry, red cherry leap from the glass along with minerally scents of gravel, sand. Tightly wound, bone dry tastes of dried cherry, mince meat, red plum are moderately tannic, ripe, leathery. Great Value  (Jun 2014)

Wine Spectator 91 points - Though packed with fresh cherry, berry and tobacco flavors, this is also chewy, with a spice and cedar side that adds depth. A modern style, yet harmonious and polished. Best from 2014 through 2023. 8,500 cases made. BS  (Sep 30 2012)

Castello di Querceto and the lands surrounding it are places full of history and atmosphere. Once the castle rose in a strategic and defensive position like a sentinel on the "Via Cassia Imperiale”, one of the main roman roads built by the Emperor Adriano in the 123 a.C. Nowadays it protects the treasure of its vineyards and olive-groves which spread along the valley of Dudda from "Passo del Sugame”, and, after Dudda, towards Lucolena and "Monte San Michele”. The castle dates back to the Lombardic time and it still preserves the medieval shape with a long "L” body and the tower with the Guelph battlement in the middle of the front. It was built in the XVI century a.C. after the destruction of the previous building, burnt and sacked during one of the several local wars at the end of the XV century. Also the houses surrounding the castle and the boundary walls were dismantled. Only the side of the wall dominating the valley remained and it is still there supporting the new building. During the construction the castle was owned by the Canigiani family, later it was bought by the Pitti, and remained for a long time their country residence.
