The 2007 Chianti Superiore (90% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot) is a sleek, racy wine with impeccable balance in its ripe fruit. The wine reveals a long, harmonious finish, with pretty floral notes that add a sense of lift on the close. This is a terrific effort from Poggiotondo.
Cedary, black currant, white chocolate, bay leaf, and spice-like characteristics emerge from this lovely red. It possesses excellent ripeness, medium to full body, and impressive density as well as richness.
