“A mix of pure cherry and cigar humidor aromas lead off, with the cherry theme continuing, supported by rosemary, iron and tar flavors. Big, burly tannins line the finish and should carry this wine for another few decades. Best from 2023 through 2040.” - Wine Spectator (7/18)

BACKGROUND
The “Fattoria Poggerino” is a small, organic family run winery located in the heart of Tuscany’s Chianti Classico production zone. It consists of 106 acres of vineyards, olive groves and woods, with a few old traditional stone houses and a 12th century church. The winery is one of the properties of a large estate which used to belong to Prince Ginori Conti, a descendant of one of Florence’s oldest families. Floriana Ginori Conti inherited the winery from her father in the 1970s, and began in 1980 together with her husband Fabrizio Lanza, to produce a Chianti Classico with the “Poggerino” label. In 1999 she handed over the property to her two children, Piero and Benedetta Lanza, who have been managing it since 1988.
