Querciabella Palafreno 2004


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.


WS 90

Introduced as a 2000 vintage, Palafreno is a blend of Merlot and Sangiovese that, in its 2004 iteration, becomes a magnificently pure Merlot. Full bodied, elegant and complex, it should be decantered and allowed to breathe for at least one hour before it can be fully appreciated. The wine's name is a testament to its character, the term used to indicate only the noblest of steeds that medieval knights would ride for travel, parades and tournaments.
