Up in the Siena hills the Poggio al Casone Estate in the Colline Pisane region of Tuscany, the Castellani family is making a major investment in their Tuscan estates. This selection is made for its ripe fruitiness and easy drinkability.
It’s a Chianti Superiore blend of 90% Sangiovese, 10% Canaiolo and aged for 12 months in Slavonian oak casks. First the senses detect figs, chocolate, tobacco and mineral aromas, followed by almonds and vanilla with light mellow flavors of cassis, ripe tart cherries then spices as the finish stretches over time.
Full disclosure: This bottle was a complimentary sample for Vigna Uva Vino from Poggio al Casone.
