This wine has an elegant aroma of red fruits, black cherries, spices and a hint of floral perfumes. The palate is powerful with juicy tannins that give a smooth texture. The finish is persistent and clean.
Deep garnet red. On the nose, dried oregano aromas are entwined with dark cherries and a smoky undertone. Ripe cherries on the palate are balanced with slightly astringent grainy tannins so typical of traditional Chianti, with a vibrant, fresh acidity on the finish.
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.
Ripe dark and red fruit aromas combine with delicate spiciness on the nose. The palate is full and rich with a velvety texture from the fine grained tannins. The finish is long with great persistence in the mouth supported by good acidity and minerality.
