The Camartina 2006 from Querciabella is an "awesome" wine. With 95 points from Galloni, it is a powerful, gripping Tuscan worth a place in any collection.
Antonio Galloni is the leading authority on Italian wine, so when he praises a producer it is a good indication that they are one to watch. With this in mind, his comments on Querciabella are very eye-catching: on tasting their 2006 releases, he described the estate as “one of the leading lights of Tuscany” and the Camartina as having potential to become “one of the finest versions of this wine ever made”.
With a decade of maturity, the Camartina has now settled in the middle point of Galloni’s drinking window, making it the perfect wine to drink right now as well as having the structure to withstand further cellaring.

The estate's 2006 Camartina (70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Sangiovese) is awesome in the way it marries considerable ripeness with a firm, classic sense of structure. Black cherries, minerals, menthol, tar and subtle French oak are some of the nuances that emerge from the 2006 Camartina. This is a decidedly big, powerful Camartina that will require some patience, but all of the ingredients are there for this to be one of the finest versions of this wine ever made. I remember visiting Querciabella in late 2006. At the time estate manager Cesare Turini and Oenologist Guido De Santi were thrilled with the quality of their harvest, which had been saved by a spell of cool weather towards the end of the growing season. Tasting the Camartina it is easy to see why; this wine has it all. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021. Wine Advocate.August, 2009
