Querce Bettina Brunello Di Montalcino 2015
2015 is an outstanding vintage for Brunello and Querce Bettina. Soil, forest floor, red fruits. The palate is medium to full, there’s substantial weight/girth in the middle. It’s more modern than traditional, but it’s also a pretty delicious wine. Bravo!
Querce Bettina is a family owned and run vineyard on the southwest slopes of Montalcino at an altitude of around 440m above sea level. Husband and Wife team Sandra Barenghi and Roberto Moretti bought the 29ha estate in 1990.

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.
