    • "Poggio Bonelli" Chianti Classico DOCG 2017

      “Poggio Bonelli” Chianti Classico DOCG 2017

      Dark ruby red. Opens with aromas of dark cherry, plum, spices and Spanish cedar. Very seductive also in taste the delicate blackberry note, which in turn mixes with tobacco, minerals and well integrated wood. In the final fresh with a precise acidity and again intensely spicy length. The Chianti Classico of Poggio Bonelli is every year very attractive, stylish and on the pulse of time. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Powerful ruby with slight garnet edge. Very fragrant and appealing nose of roasted hazelnuts, ripe, dark cherries and lilies. Firm and gripping on the palate, lots of dark berry fruit, opens with present, dense tannin, firm pressure in the final." Falstaff

      "A fresh, fruity red with blueberries, some blackberries and hints of sage and bark. It’s medium-bodied with a lovely, integrated palate and a subtle finish. Delicious now. Drink and enjoy." James Suckling

    • "Poggiassai" Rosso Toscana IGT 2015

      “Poggiassai” Rosso Toscana IGT 2015

      In the bouquet noble, typically Tuscan notes of cherries, blackberries, violets and spices. Exceptionally complex, multilayered and excellently structured on the palate. Gripping tannins, intense fruit and pleasant acidity are already in perfect harmony. The drinking pleasure builds nicely and increases in the long final. For us, it has been the attractive alternative to Antinori's famous Tignanello for years. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Dark garnet. Spicy nose, animal, chalky, tar and resin, dark fruit. Pithy and compact on the medium-bodied palate, great juiciness, spicy, with persistence." Falstaff

      "The 2015 Poggiassai is a dark and generous blend with lots of rich fruit and energy on the bouquet. The mouthfeel is a bit more moderate than the Chianti Classico Riserva, but all that delicious power of the bouquet gives you a lot to contemplate. This would be a good one to serve with aged and aromatic cheeses." Robert Parker

      "I love the intensity to this with dark cherries, nutmeg, licorice, vanilla and walnuts. Full-bodied and decadent, yet the acidity steers the ripe fruit through to a mineral, tangy finish that’s long and chewy. Best ever from here." James Suckling

    • "Tramonto d'Oca" Toscana IGT 2015

      “Tramonto d’Oca” Toscana IGT 2015

      Tramonto d'Oca is a single-varietal red from the French (and not entirely simple) Petit Verdot variety. On the nose, in addition to the traditional wood note from the barrel, there are diverse aromas of spices, violets, blackberries and blackcurrants. On the palate, notes of pickled fruit, coffee and chocolate. Firmly structured and long, needs time and air. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This is just starting to come around now. Full-bodied and flavorful, offering blackberry, blueberry and dark-chocolate aromas and flavors. Sold density of tannins, but approachable now. A beauty, but still better after 2021." James Suckling

      "A pure expression of Petit Verdot, the Poggio Bonelli 2015 Tramonto d'Oca is a luscious and concentrated wine that shows good density and volume with black cherry, plum, dried blackberry, spice, tar and cured leather. The wine's density makes a solid and lasting impact on the palate and would surely pair well with a barbecue grilled steak." Robert Parker

    About the winemakersPoggio BonelliTuscany | Chianti
    Poggio Bonelli

    As early as the 16th century, the Poggio Bonelli winery in the extreme south of Chianti Classico began to cultivate wine. Over the centuries, the estate has been owned by various noble families from Siena. At first it was inhabited by the Spennali family. In the second half of the 16th century the estate belonged to the prominent Piccolomini family. Later, the estate passed to the Landucci family. She managed the estate first alone, later with the help of the Croci family until well into the 20th century. The Poggio Bonelli estate started production in 1950. 35 years later, the 810-hectare estate was sold to MPS Tenimenti, the agricultural subsidiary of Monte dei Paschi di Siena, the oldest bank in the world.

    Today the Poggio Bonelli winery produces not only fine wines of very high quality from the fruits of 8,000 olive trees, but also extra virgin olive oil. On top of that, it runs an agriturismo business. The vineyards cover an area of 83 hectares near Castelnuovo Berardenga. There the wines find their special fullness and strength. The southern and south-western areas are planted with Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The berries are strictly selected after harvesting. The soils, which date back to the Pliocene period, are rich in clay, tuff and sand.

    A few years ago the restructuring of the vineyard and the winery was completed. New vineyards were planted and old wooden barrels were completely replaced. Production was streamlined to just a few labels. Poggio Bonelli's wines are vinified today in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and later matured mainly in small French oak barrels before being refined in the bottle.

    Poggiassai, a cuvée of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, is one of the house's top products. Star oenologist Carlo Ferrini has been on board since 1999. Together with Leonardo Pini, he closely watches over the production. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Through a strict vineyard management following modern criteria, the labels of Poggio Bonelli gain an international profile, characterized by great concentration."Gambero Rosso
