    • Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2016

      Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2016

      Sensual bouquet of aromas of ripe raspberries and sour cherries, with earthy and spicy nuances, coffee, chocolate and tobacco. Full-bodied and full-bodied on the palate, well structured with silky tannins and a long final. Excellent price-quality ratio in small print runs. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva shows a very smooth and velvety quality of fruit. Lots of brooding black fruits are expertly woven into spice and savory notes of leather and moist earth. The wine shows medium intensity and build in the mouth. It's great for a Sunday pot roast. Fruit for this wine comes from the highest part of a single-vineyard parcel." Robert Parker

      "A meaty Chianti Classico Riserva that displays undergrowth, red-cherry cake, earth and brambles. Full-bodied and quite chewy, this wine’s strong suit is its wealth of dried red fruit and juicy acidity, as well as tannin combination." James Suckling

    • "Poggiassai" Rosso Toscana IGT 2013

      “Poggiassai” Rosso Toscana IGT 2013

      In the bouquet noble, typical Tuscan notes of cherries, blackberries, violets and spices. Exceptionally complex, multi-layered and excellently structured on the palate. Tannins with a good grip, intense fruit and pleasant acidity are already in perfect harmony today. The drinking pleasure builds up nicely and increases in the long final. For us it has been the attractive alternative to Antinori's famous Tignanello for years. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2013 Poggiassai is three parts Sangiovese with one part Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a plush and darkly concentrated red wine with plum fruit and blackberry followed by licorice, crushed mineral and dark spice. The wine is smooth and soft as it wraps thickly over the palate." Robert Parker

      "A dense and velvety red with dark berry, hints of vanilla and a chocolate undertone. Full body, lovely texture and a flavorful finish." James Suckling

      "Fresh aromas of cherry, wild rosemary, thyme, sage, earth and tobacco signal this complex, powerful red. Builds to a solid, dense matrix of tannins by the finish, with vibrant acidity." Wine Spectator

      "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

    About the winemakers
    Poggio Bonelli
    Tuscany | 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
