Chianti Riserva `Vigna delle Conchiglie` Poggiotondo 2018

£50.00

The Poggiotondo estate in Western Tuscany is part of the empire of Alberto Antonini, the renowned winemaker who has associations with many famous names around the world.  This estate is organic, and the Chianti Classico ‘Terre di Cresci’ is a good example of a good Chianti Classico – cherries, spices and great structure.

Chianti Classico has just got better and better in recent years, no more wicker bottles with tired astringent wines inside.  New clones, new vineyard practices and seriously good winemaking has ensured these wines can compete with top reds from around the world. This wine is mid to light garnet in colour. The nose is full of ripe dark and red fruit aromas, which combine with a delicate spiciness. The palate is full and rich complemented by good acidity and a velvety texture from the fine grained tannins. The finish is long with great persistence.

A very versatile wine with food so keep some in your handy rack for pizza night and Sunday lunch,.  A hunk of cheddar will finish the bottle off nicely.
