Winemaker Notes

Bright brilliant color, reflecting garnet and violet nuances. The nose is fine and elegant, developing pronounced notes of cherry and blueberry. Violets and peonies complete this complex nose, giving it great distinction. On the palate, the wine is expressive, with a freshness that highlights its balance, structure and aromatic richness. It evokes mineral tones balanced by a pleasing ripeness. This combination gives the concentration and density specific to great wines, but with the great finesse and elegance of Fleurie. The finish is enhanced by delicate spicy touches, with remarkable length.

Critical Acclaim

ST 92
International Wine Cellar

Brilliant ruby-red. High-pitched, seductively perfumed aromas of fresh red berries, Asian spices and minerals. Juicy, penetrating and pure, with striking clarity to its lively raspberry and floral pastille flavors. Betrays no excess weight or rough edges and finishes sweet, focused and extremely long, with resonating florality.

Villa Ponciago
Villa Ponciago is a centuries old domain with an ancient history; the first traces and its Latin name date back to AD 949. In 2008 the Henriot family purchased the domain in Fleurie, together with 48 hectares of prime vineyards. The terroirs of the estate are unique, with a total of 214 historically demarcated parcels that were previously classified as Premiers Crus and Premiere Classe. The crystalline granite in the soil gives the wines a complex minerality and elegance pushing the boundaries of preconceived notions of Cru Beaujolais.

Today, with their expertise in other great terroirs, the Henriot family has unveiled the domain to reveal the historic qualities which had formerly given it a reputation of excellence for the Fleurie Cru. The strength of the terroirs, the quest for quality, the expertise of the winemaking team, small yields – less than 50 hectolitres per hectare as in the 19th century, are once again producing exceptional Fleurie wines.

Named “Oenotria” by the ancient Greeks for its abundance of grapevines, Italy has always had a culture that is virtually inextricable from wine. Wine grapes are grown just about everywhere throughout the country—a long and narrow boot-shaped peninsula extending into the Mediterranean and Adriatic Seas. The defining geographical feature of the country is the Apennine Mountain range, extending from Liguria in the north to Calabria in the south. The island of Sicily nearly grazes the toe of Italy’s boot, while Sardinia lies to the country’s west. Climate varies significantly throughout the country, with temperature being somewhat more dependent on elevation than latitude, though it is safe to generalize that the south is warmer. Much of the highest quality viticulture takes place on gently rolling, picturesque hillsides.

Italy boasts more indigenous varieties than any other country—between 500 and 800, depending on whom you ask—and most wine production relies upon these native grapes. In some regions, international varieties have worked their way in, but their use is declining in popularity, especially as younger growers begun to take interest in rediscovering forgotten local specialties. Sangiovese is the most widely planted variety in the country, reaching its greatest potential in parts of Tuscany. Nebbiolo is the prized grape of Piedmont in the northwest, producing singular and age-worthy wines at its best. Other important varieties include Montepulciano, Trebbiano, Barbera, Nero d’Avola, and of course, Pinot Grigio.
