Castell in Villa. Poggio delle Rose Riserva
Chianti Classico DOCG

Grape  Sangiovese

14.5%


This is the top Sangiovese wine of Castell’in Villa and regarded as one of the finest in Chianti Classico. The fruit is always taken from the vineyard after which it is named ‘Poggio delle Rose’ and it is a wine that is only made in the best years. A thoughtful and very definitely Castell’in Villa wine, miraculously unadulterated by the new oak, concentrated and yet understated. Whilst Coralia is undecided as yet regarding the relevance of the new Gran Selezione category, I suspect that were she to join the party, this would be the wine to go.

The vineyard is on a south to southwest slope at an altitude of three hundred and fifty metres. The soils are a typical galestro, alluvial with small stones, a mixture of clays and sands. The vines are a massal selection from the estates’ best Sangiovese, the harvest is by hand and the fermentation spontaneous in temperature controlled steel tanks. The wine is aged in new French oak tonneaux for eighteen months and is bottled without filtration.
