2017 Poggerino, Chianti Classico (RT 91) This challenging vintage was handled as well as can be expected at Poggerino. It’s pure Sangiovese, that is both forward and soft, yet amply delicious with excellent ripe fruit, spice and a sumptuous style. Showing tasty red cherry, balsam and dried white flowers with soft notes of underbrush and hints of spice, it reveals a round mouthfeel with soft acidity and supple tannins. This should be tasty over the next few years and is a delicious food wine. Drink now-2024+
