"These wines are simply gorgeous. That’s all there is to it." — Antonio Galloni, January 2018
Querciabella stands head and shoulders above any other producer in Chianti Classico...and it is truly impressive to see what Castiglione and Currado have managed to achieve at this historic estate in Greve." — Antonio Galloni, Vinous
Sebastiano Cossia Castiglioni was born in 1966 in Milan. Under the tutelage of his father Giuseppe Castiglioni, Sebastiano was introduced at an early age to the world of fine wine. A lifelong passion for great winemaking matched by a strong commitment to the environmental movement inspired Sebastiano to convert Querciabella to organic viticulture in 1988 and to biodynamics in 2000.
Querciabella now enjoys the acclaim of the world’s most discriminating critics and consumers for its exquisite range of biodynamic wines including Camartina, Batàr, Palafreno, Querciabella Chianti Classico and Mongrana. In its uncompromising pursuit of quality, sustainability and authenticity, Querciabella has continally honed its approach to biodynamic viticulture for over a decade with vineyards located throughout Tuscany’s Chianti Classico and Maremma areas. Thanks to Sebastiano Cossia Castiglioni’s vision and leadership, Quercibella exemplifies the preservation of tradition through forward-thinking, albeit completely natural, winemaking - which James Suckling calls the future of Chianti Classico.
