Camartina is made and released only if the vintage reaches a very high quality level. The vineyards where the grapes for Camartina are grown have been cultivated organically since 1988, and have been converted to a strict biodynamic standard in 2000. The growing season for this vintage included a cool spring with abun­dant rainfall, followed by moderate summer heat and warm autumn temperatures, allowing grapes to ripen gradually through the end of October. This extended, more traditional hang time, compared to recent vinta­ges, produced harmonious and balanced wines.

The 2013 Camartina is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese, all from the Ruffoli sub-zone of Greve. It's much less international in style than it used to be, or perhaps the Cabernet over the years has become domestic. Dense, creamy and beautifully textured in the glass, but in the restrained style that characterizes Querciabella's wines today, the 2013 is a real winner. Even at this early stage, it's all finesse. I can't wait to taste it with a few years of bottle age.

Macerated blackberry, cherry, plum and tar flavors highlight this intense, muscular red. The structure is solid and compact, but gains elegance and length with air. Decant now, or age for two or three years. Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese. Best from 2020 through 2032. 833 cases made, 33 cases imported.
