#18 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2013
The winery's largest production, the Poggerino Chianti Classico is made from Sangiovese 100%.The wine spends one year in barriques before being aged in bottle. Its color is light ruby, with aromas of blackberries, cherries and redcurrant, with a touch of licorice and vanilla spice. The tannins are sweet and persistent.
Recommended with spicy-sauced pasta and mild-tasting red meats.
"Bright and well-endowed with pure cherry, raspberry and black currant fruit, shaded by tobacco, licorice and mineral flavors. Elegant, intense and persistent, with a long aftertaste of fruit and mineral. This should age well, but a trade-off to lose that beautiful fruit now."
