The comment of our oenologist

Chianti Classico di Poggerino: the term Chianti Classico is sometimes associated with out of date wines with a harsh acidity; in parallel, there are wines where the components of complementary varieties, like for example Cabernet and Merlot, remove any territorial connotation. Poggerino is another world: pure Sangiovese with structure, full taste, vigorous and flavorful tannin.
