Our approach to winemaking is quite simple. Let the natural flavors of our beautiful grapes and terroir lead the way to creating elegant wines with a sense of place.
Each of the wines are crafted solely from estate grown fruit - from our everyday drinking L'aura Chianti Classico to the Podalirio Merlot with a true Tuscan sensibility, and our Sei Gran Selezione, well-deserving of its strict classification, to the one-of-a-kind Livia Bianco and favorite summer-sipping Furtivo rosé.
L'aura Chianti Classico was the very first wine produced by Querceto di Castellina in 1998, with about 3,300 bottles.
The Querceto di Castellina production has consistently grown over the past 19 years and we’re thrilled to share the wines with wine lovers around the globe, selling in key markets within the United States, Canada, Russia and throughout Europe. And it's always a pleasure to personally introduce each guest of the winery and agriturismo to our natural elegant and organic wines.

Current release: 2018 New Release
This was very first wine produced by the estate back in 1998 and is appropriately named after owner and the heart of Querceto, Laura Di Battista.
A vibrant ruby red wine. Most magical, alongside the aromas of fresh red and black cherries is the note of Orris, Iris root, a rare perfume treasured by parfumiers - redolent of violets, pepper and fresh cotton sheets. Medium bodied yet full spirited, the palate is exemplary Sangiovese, dynamic in structure high acidity and high tannins are balanced by perfectly ripe, premium fruit.
Enjoy a glass at lunchtime, dinnertime...anytime - versatile and beautifully balanced, you may not even need a meal perhaps just a comfortable spot to sit!
