Poggiotondo Organic Chianti DOCG

2017

In a Nutshell

Made from grapes grown on six individual parcels from the best vineyard sites, this wine has flavours of ripe cherries balanced by grainy, classic Chianti tannins.

Tasting Notes

This wine is deep garnet red in colour. On the nose, dried oregano aromas mix with dark and red cherries. Ripe cherries on the palate are balanced with grainy tannins, typical of traditional Chianti, with vibrant, fresh acidity on the finish.

Production Notes

The organically grown fruit was hand harvested, crushed and transferred to concrete tanks where it underwent a spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeasts. A proportion of the wine was then racked to large French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation, and remained there for matured for eight months.
