TENUTA POGGIO AI MANDORLI
2007 CHIANTI CLASSICO RISERVA
Newly released and imported Tenuta Poggio Ai Mandorli into the United States has just received a fantastic rating from Wine Enthusiast – 87 points, and will be featured in the 2013 May Wine Enthusiast Issue.
87 PTS – This Chianti Classico Riserva is quite unique in character and make; consisting of 90% Sangiovese grapes, blended together with Merlot & Cabernet Sauvignon. It is aged for 18 months in oak casks and refined for an additional four months in the bottle before the release.
Tasting Notes: An intense ruby red color, with delicate flashes of maroon, it offers a complex, elegant bouquet giving hints of violet and wild berries. The taste is warm and comforting, with soft noble tannin’s that endow the wine with an alluring, persistent character.
