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.

Sei is the number six in Italian and there were many instances of this number coinciding with the production of our Gran Selezione. The single-vineyard wine comes from a special selection of grapes in a vineyard area measuring 6.6 hectares with a density of 6,666 vines per hectare within our Vineyard Belvedere. The tonneaux barrels we predominantly use hold 666 bottles of wine and our lovely Laura was born in 6/6/46.
Sei is an intense, ruby red and elegant wine with notes of red roses, potpourri and underlying hints of oriental spices and mint. Expressive and full in the mouth with punchy acidity, balanced out by accentuated tannins.
