IN THE KITCHEN
Laura's Penne Pasta With Pancetta, Porcini & Black Olives
These days we’re finding relief and joy being in the kitchen and it’s those dishes that we’ve cooked up and enjoyed more times that we can remember that are giving us the most comfort. Laura’s penne pasta with pancetta, porcini mushrooms and black olives is a rustic dish that surely falls into the category of comfort food for us.

Querceto Featured on Winetraveler
We had a visit from Kristy Wenz of Winetraveler, a fast-growing wine-travel focused media company.
She put together an amazing 5-day itinerary in the Chianti region, featuring Querceto as the place to stay and provide a number of other fantastic recommendations.

New Wine Review & Rating
94pts for our Sei 2015
We received some excellent news to end the year for us at Querceto from our friends at Wine Spectator. The Sei Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2015 was given 94 points and was featured in their member’s only Insider Newsletter as one of the most exciting news wines tasted by their editors.
New Wine Release
This new additional to our portfolio was crafted in celebration of the 20th anniversary of Querceto di Castellina. It is a bold, yet elegant wine showcasing the best of our Sangiovese and Merlot grapes. With only 800 bottles, Venti is a special, limited release wine and will only be available exclusively from the winery.
The Evolution of Querceto
It was the fall time 20 years ago that we handpicked and selected the grapes to go into the very first vintage of the L’aura Chianti Classico from Querceto di Castellina.
In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Querceto winery, we’ve evolved the “look” of our organic estate and redesigned the logo and wine labels.
This fall is the 20th anniversary of the very first harvest at Querceto di Castellina. We’re extremely proud of the past 20 years and are thrilled to say we have some great momentum as we enter the 3rd decade of winemaking at our organic estate.
Reviews & Ratings
L'aura 2015 91 points
& Sei 2013 93 points
We do not value our wines based on reviews and ratings but rather on our level of pride in sharing them with the world. However, it's always wonderful when the Querceto wines are recognized by the wine world.
We’re sending thanks to Wine Enthusiast for the 91 points for our L’aura Chianti Classico 2015 and 93 points for the Sei Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2013. See the full tasting notes for both wines from Kerin O’Keefe.
