Notes from the Winemaker:
This wine was first produced in 1999 as a blend of Sangiovese and Merlot. Since 2005, it is the only French variety fit for our terroir and able to express its full potential and purity. "Iphiclides Podalirio" is the scientific name of a kind of butterfly with pale yellow wings and black stripes that can be found all over the Querceto estate.

The Estate:
Located in Querceto, between the Sienese towns of Castellina and Radda in Chianti, our estate extends for more than 125 acres, of which 27,20 are vineyards, 26,20 of which are enrolled in the Chianti Classico DOCG, and about 7 acres are for olive groves.

Ratings and Reviews

Wine Spectator Magazine:
This very ripe red displays dark plum, black cherry and spicy oak flavors. This is soft, with dense tannins that are mouthcoating in the end. Best from 2012 through 2016. 420 cases made. - BS (2011)
