The nose is elegant with a blend of ripe dark fruits and a hint of earthiness. The palate has supple, velvety tannins and a soft mouthfeel leading to a long complex finish.
Chianti DOCG Superiore
The Poggiotondo estate is situated in the hills to the northwest of Empoli in western Tuscany. These hills are south and southwest facing, and are planted primarily with Sangiovese. Alberto Antonini’s estate has been certified organic since the 2014 vintage. His aim is to make wines with a strong sense of place, which exemplify the very best from Chianti.
The wine is made from a selection of fruit from the low yielding Poggiotondo estate vineyards. Soils are limestone and the vines are Guyot pruned and trained using vertical shoot positioning. The estate has recently converted to organic viticulture and is certified organic from vintage 2014.
The fruit was destemmed and gently crushed before fermentation in concrete tanks for 15 days at approximately 28°C. The wine was then pressed into large untoasted oak casks, where it went through malolactic fermentation before ageing for 12 months. This was followed by six months of ageing in bottle before release.
