2017 querciabella, batar, toscana igt

Why We're Buying

Batàr stands out, even among the Querciabella portfolio. It’s the only wine that features pinot blanc or chardonnay, harnessing equal proportions of both before barrel-fermenting and maturing the blend. The result is a white wine that is not only full of character but also dynamism. As Vinous Media’s Antonio Galloni said, “Querciabella stands head and shoulders above any other estate in Chianti Classico."

Vinous

A gorgeous wine, the 2017 Batàr is soft, open-knit and alluring from the first taste. Apricot, chamomile, mint, peach and dried herbs are all finely knit in the 2017. Although the 2017 will improve in bottle, it is already accessible and easy to enjoy. The interplay of textural richness and freshness makes for a beguiling white.

This is a rich and layered white with cooked apple, honey, lime and light vanilla character that flows across the palate. Medium to full body. Flavorful finish. Excellent depth and beauty. Blend of pinot bianco and chardonnay. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink now.
