Winemaker's Notes:

Select parcels of fruit from the low-yielding Poggiotondo estate vineyards render a ripe, complex Chianti. Extended time on skins and maturation in seasoned French oak delivers concentrated black fruits and elegant spices, velvet tannins, enviable balance and ample structure for aging.

About Poggiotondo:

In the north-western corner of the Chianti region, resting on the hills between the Montalbano and Arno valley, 123 acres of vines are joined by some 2,000 olive trees on the Poggiotondo estate. Founder and winemaker Alberto Antonini is a scholar of modern winemaking earning degrees from the University of Florence, Bordeaux University, and University of California Davis in addition to his winemaking stints around the globe. The Poggiotondo vineyards enjoy a Mediterranean influence and soils are riddled with remnants of sea life that afford minerality and complexity to these modern DOCG and IGT renditions.
