The vineyards where the grapes for Camartina are grown have been organically farmed since 1988. A full conversion to biodynamic techniques was later carried out in 2000. The grapes are carefully selected in the vineyards and harvested in 8 kilo crates. They are destemmed, not crushed, then transferred into five-ton French oak fermenters. Here, alcoholic fermentation, maceration and malolactic fermentation take place. Macerations last about 12 days for the Sangiovese, and up to 20 days for the Cabernet Sauvignon. Afterwards, the wine is transferred to French barriques; 25% new oak. The different cépages undergo separate élevage for one year. At this stage, the best lots, selected through extensive tasting, are assembled into the final blend, which undergoes another year of élevage. After bottling the wine rests for about six months before release. The wine is released no sooner than 30 months after harvest. Depending on the vintage, it reaches maturity between 4 and 7 years after harvest. The plateau lasts until at least 18 years after harvest. Camartina is made and released only in the best vintages. The wine was not produced in 1989, 1992, 1998, 2002 and 2009. No animal products or byproducts are used in the production of this wine, making it suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

Querciabella 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 communes 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.
