Poggerino Chianti Classico 2015
“Exceptional hand-crafted Sangiovese, previously voted #18 of the Top Wines of the World.”
Many wines have been called Chianti as they are from the larger Tuscan area, however this is a Chianti Classico as it is from the original Chianti heartland, sporting the sign of the ‘Black Rooster/Gallo Nero” to show that it really is from this terroir. Hand-harvested and manually berry selection ensures only the finest fruit reaches the presses. The wine is given 12 months barrel aging in a unique blend of French and Slovakian oak, before a final minimum of 8 months bottle aging before release. Naturally informal in approach. If you are nostalgic for classic Sangiovese, this is your wine.
