Wine maker notes
The grapes are picked by hand and harvested based on their phenolic maturation, using small crates. In the cellar, they undergo fermentation in stainless steel vats. After malolactic fermentation, the wine undergoes elevage mostly in cement vats until it is blended to be bottled. A small selection of the wine is matured in barriques for ten months and then added to the final blend. Mongrana is the quintessential expression of the colors, sights and sounds of the Maremma region: fruity and intense, fresh and embracing, the wine takes its name – and its character – from that of the noble family of knights depicted by the Italian Renaissance poet Ludovico Ariosto in his epic masterpiece Orlando Furioso (“Mad Orlando”). Mongrana is bottled and packaged exclusively in the following formats: 0.750 liter [12 or 6 bottle cardboard box]; 1.5 liter [1 bottle cardboard box]. Mongrana is produced without using any animal products or byproducts. It is therefore suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

Producer
Since chemical–free viticulture was introduced at Querciabella with the conversion to organics in 1988 followed by a transition to biodynamics in 2000, the goal has been to maintain a balanced ecosystem where healthy, living soil provides the highest quality of nourishment to vines, while achieving perfect harmony with the rest of nature. The winery practices a proprietary farming regime known as cruelty–free biodynamics, which bars the use of animal–derived products from all phases of grape growing and winemaking. This 100% vegan approach to biodynamic viticulture is not only key to producing wines of exquisite quality and marked territoriality, but is also a direct challenge against the industrialized farming establishment – an economic behemoth based on the systematic exploitation of animals, which scientific research shows to have devastating effects on our planet. Querciabella opposes the use of GMOs, especially in agriculture, given their grievous environmental impact. The winery also rejects artificial manipulation in winemaking, including the practice of reverse osmosis, which compromises the natural chemical composition of wine. With 74 hectares (183 acres) of prime Chianti Classico vineyards – located in the municipalities of Greve, Panzano, Radda and Gaiole – in addition to 32 hectares (79 acres) in Maremma on Tuscany’s unspoiled Etruscan coast, Querciabella’s holdings represent the largest extensions of biodynamically farmed (certified organic) vineyards in Italy, contributing extraordinary biodiversity to local and surrounding ecosystems and serving as a sanctuary for thriving numbers of honeybee colonies.
