Winemaker's Notes

#11 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

Obtained from Sangiovese Grosso, a strong and generous vine, it is a wine that expresses the intensity and the strenght of the soil where it comes from.

Critical Acclaim

"Dried dark fruit on the nose, verging on date and prune. Full-bodied, with a dense palate of ripe fruit and supersilky tannins. This is a deep and beautiful red, delivering lots of subtle character. Fascinating. One of the undiscovered treasures of the vintage. Best after 2011. 2,000 cases made."
96 Points

"Poggio Il Castellare has taken leaps and bounds in quality over the past few years and this vintage boasts a sophisticated and penetrating wine with cherry, spice, vanilla and toast. There’s a strong oak element here but it coexists comfortably with the natural fruit. "

For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
