Querceto, Apertitive, London

Because I love Chianti, because Chianti goes really well with aperitive.

On a dark and extremly cold London night, lets have some bruchettas with some Chianti. Feeling like it is summer when it is absolutly not!

> Castello di Querceto

Querceto is a name of a forest, near Greve in Chianti.

super interesting history for this wine :

“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 found 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.”

The wine tasted is the Chianti Classico one, produced in Greve, and stayed in oak barrels for 10 to 12 months, and the in the bottle before release on market for few more months (3 minimum).

Grapes are Sangiovese (more than 90 %) and Some other varieties. Ruby color, nice and delicate aromas, and elegant wine.

Simply perfect and lovely to feel the sun when it is actually not there!

Car j’aime le Chianti, et car il va très bien avec un apéritif!

Lors d’un soir très sombre et extrêmement frais à Londres, prenons donc des bruchettas avec du Chianti. Cela semble très été alors que ce n’est as du tout le cas!

Ce vin est le Chianti Classico, produit sur Greve, élevé en barriques pendant 10 à 12 mois, et ensuite conservé en bouteilles pour quelques mois (minimum 3) avant leur mise sur le marché.

à base de Sangiovese (plus de 90 %) et d’autres cépages. D’une belle couleur ruby, des arômes délicats et très beaux, un vin très élégant.

Simplement parfait et charmant pour sentir le soleil quand il est en fait pas tout à fait avec nous!
