Giuseppe (Pepito) Castiglioni, an industrial entrepreneur, and lifelong wine lover bought a single hectare of a vineyard on a Tuscan hillside and set about creating an estate that would now spans the breadth of the region. The name Querciabella means "Beautiful Oaks" as they are surrounded by wonderful oak trees.  Querciabella’s commitment to creating extraordinary wines, without causing harm or disrupting the delicate balance of nature, is what makes their wines as lively and beautiful as their land.

Palafreno is a monumental Merlot with an ethereal lightness of touch. Exclusively released in years when ripening conditions are near perfection.

Tasting Notes

At just over a decade old, this wonderful 2006 Palafreno is reaching a fine summit of classical expression. Dense, ripe plum and prune are encased in exotic spiced notes. The texture is silken and profound with pristine, velveteen tannins and elegance only found in wines of real pedigree.  Lingering long in the mouth, it displays leather, cigar box, game, and dark cherries alongside a distinctive energy and perfume that speaks of its Tuscan heritage. 

2006 Palafreno is a classy wine that comes in minute quantities direct from Querciabella’s cellar in Chianti. Exquisite provenance for a wine of this stature doesn’t come along very often. You won’t want to miss out. 

Food Pairing

If you’d prefer to enjoy it now, try pairing it with hearty wild game or beef dishes to soften the firm tannins.
