Querce Bettina Rosso Di Montalcino 2012
Querce Bettina’s philosophy is simple: great wines are made in the vineyard.
What this amounts to is minimal intervention in the vineyard in order to harvest perfectly healthy grapes; stringent fruit selection via green harvest, hand harvesting and sorting tables to ensure every grape goes into the winery in the best possible condition; Gentle pressing followed by fermentation in stainless steel at controlled temperatures (including malolactic fermentation); moderate extraction and sensitive use of oak.
The result is a range of wines that display finesse and elegance, as well as an innate vibrancy, and that speak clearly of their terroir.
