92 points "core: 92 Release Price: $119Country: ItalyRegion: TuscanyIssue: Oct 31, 2009 A stylish combination of currant and cassis on the nose, with a hint of rose petal, turning to licorice. Full-bodied, with chewy yet polished tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Polished and very pretty. Tight and holding back. Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese. Best after 2010. 1,400 cases made. –JS" Best 2012-2018

95 points ""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...95" WA 09/09 " Best 2012-2021
