Notes from the Producer:
"Mongrana 2005 was the first wine made by Querciabella in Maremma to be commercially released. Vintage after vintage, this blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon has continuously improved and earned global attention by offering an excellent value to those seeking complexity and depth of flavours while delivering remarkable freshness and harmony. The long list of accolades includes being named one of the 100 Best Wines in the World by Wine Spectator, topping the Drinks Business list of Best unoaked Tuscan Red and winning several stellar reviews by international critics like James Suckling.
The vintage 2019 started with another mild winter followed by a wet spring that posed some challenges in the vineyards; however, flowering and fruit set went well, anticipating a phenomenal harvest both in quality and quantity. The first week of May saw the temperatures soar, and this heat continued through the Summer. It may have been torrid at times, but there were no problems with drought stress thanks to the abundant water reserves after the Spring rains. September brought the desired day/night temperature differences, and the weather stayed fine and stable well into the harvest period. Excellent phenolic ripeness, achieved with beautiful skin to pulp ratios and abundant quantity, raise expectations for a great 2019."
