Il Poggiale Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG
Il Poggiale Chinati Classico Riserva is definitely the Chianti Classico cru produced by Castellare di Castellina winery. It is the Reserve that comes from a single vineyard in Castellina in Chianti (SI) and which has consistently achieved top levels for its elegance This Tuscan red wine enhances the enormous potential of Sangiovese (90%) to which are added small percentages of local Canaiolo and Ciliegiolo grapes. The harvest takes place around the second half of October and the wine making process is carried out through temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine ages in 20% new barriques for 12-18 months, before refining in bottle for the next 12 months.
Intense and lively ruby colour. On the nose you will easily recognize violet floral scents which are typical of Sangiovese, together with more fruity aromas of cherry that mix tigether with a slight mineral background. On the palate this wine opens immediately, with freshness and flavour, while in the pleasant finish the fragrant fruity notes found on the nose are repeated. We suggest serving it at a temperature of 16-18 °C.
