WINENAKER'S NOTES

The grapes for the Mongrana are picked by hand and harvested based on their phonemic maturation. They are then moved to the cellars in small crates, where they undergo fermentation-first in stainless steel vats and then cement vats-until they are bottled. A small selection of the wine is aged in barriques for three months and then added to the final blend.

Mongrana is the quintessential expression of the colors, sights and sounds of the Maremma region: fruity and intense, fresh and embracing, the wine takes its name - and its character - from that of the noble family of knights depicted by the Italian Renaissance poet Ludovico Ariosto in his epic masterpiece Orlando Furioso. No animal products or byproducts are used in the production of this wine, it is certified vegan, organic and biodynamic

Critical Acclaim:

94 points - James Suckling
"Plenty of fresh blackberry, blackcurrant leaf, pepper and licorice on the nose. It's full-bodied with delicious, wild brambleberry and herb notes, framed by firm, elegant tannins. Long, fresh finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink from 2021."

92 points - Wine Spectator
"Ripe and polished, this red offers plum, black cherry, licorice and spice flavors. Vibrant and harmonious, with slightly chewy tannins gracing the lingering aftertaste. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2024."

90 - Vinous
"The 2018 Mongrana, Querciabella's entry-level red, is fabulous. A burst of dark cherry, plum, spice, new leather and chocolate gives the 2018 so much immediacy and sheer appeal. Overall, this is a pretty restrained style for the Tuscan coast. There is so much to like here."
