This year too, Castello di Querceto will participate in the “Chianti Classico Collection” event to be held at the Stazione Leopolda on 21 and 22 March 2022.
It will be an excellent opportunity to taste what the Chianti Classico panorama has in store for us, and for the occasion we will also present the Chianti Classico Castello di Querceto 2020, the Riserva 2019, the two Gran Selezione, La Corte and Il Picchio, in the 2019 vintage, the Igt Cignale 2017, and the Vin Santo Doc Chianti Classico 2016.
This year the Chianti Classico Collection 2022 will present the Additional Geographical Units of Chianti Classico.
The Additional Geographical Units project is an important stage in the process of enhancing the distinctive characteristics of Chianti Classico: a path which, in recent years, has taken the Black Rooster denomination ever higher up the international rankings of quality wines, increasing its fame, prestige and popularity on tables all over the world.
This new subdivision of the Chianti Classico production territory into more restricted and more homogeneous areas will lead us to indicate the name of the additional Geographical Unit on the label, reinforcing communication of the wine-territory combination, increasing quality in terms of identity and territoriality, allowing the consumer to know where the grapes come from and, last but not least, stimulating demand by differentiating the offer.
L’introduzione del nome dell’Unità Geografica Aggiuntiva in etichetta servirà infatti ad intercettare e soddisfare l’interesse dei consumatori che, in numero sempre maggiore, desiderano approfondire la conoscenza del rapporto fra i vini del Gallo Nero e il loro territorio di origine.
To this end, eleven areas have been identified and delimited within the Chianti Classico production area, distinguished on the basis of a unique combination of natural factors (soil composition, microclimate, vineyard location, etc.) and human factors (cultural history, local traditions, community spirit):
Greve, Lamole, Montefioralle, Panzano, Radda, Gaiole, Castelnuovo Berardenga, Vagliagli, Castellina, San Donato in Poggio, San Casciano.
For the first time in Italy, this edition of the Chianti Classico Collection presents the 180 participating producers and their wines according to this new geographical division.
