Superb, ageworthy Chianti from the brilliant 2015
At Armadale Cellars, we love good Chianti Classico.
Undervalued, Chianti Classico is arguably the most authentic,
unadulterated expression of Sangiovese. There are very few, if any,
better examples of Chianti Classico than Poggerino.
The historic Poggerino property was once part of the estate of Prince
Ginori Conti, a member of one of Florence's oldest families. Today the
estate, situated at Radda in the heart of Chianti Classico, is run by
highly-dedicated brother and sister team, Piero and Benedetta Lanza, who
took over from their father in the mid-1980's.
The attention to detail in the vineyard verges on fanatical, with
biodynamic farming, careful clonal selection, close planted vines,
nitrogenous cover crops, extensive canopy management and hand picking to
ensure the best possible combination of concentration, acidity and ripe
tannins. Wild yeast fermentation, modern winemaking techniques and 12
months in French barrique and tonneaux complete the process.
Over the years, Poggerino Chianti Classico has been a remarkably
consistent performer. Since 2008, every vintage has scored 17/20 or
more on jancisrobinson.com. No other Chianti Classico can boast
such consistently high scores. 2015 is a stunning Tuscan vintage,
and Poggerino Chianti Classico 2015 may well be the best from this label
in a decade.
