Quercia al Poggio "Riserva" 2012

100% Sangiovese
A still red wine from the Chianti, Tuscany region of Italy.

Full body and chewy. Cherry, potpourri, tobacco, dark chocolate.

Tasting Notes

This Chianti Classico has an attractive tawny colour.

On the nose I find prune jam, dark cherry, potpourri. The bouquet opens up and reveals the tertiary notes. Tobacco and dark chocolate come through.

The 2012 Riserva from Quercia al Poggio is full body on the palate and sapid. The texture is chewy with pleasant tannins.

The finish is long with persistent with spice and toasty notes.

Wine making grape

Sangiovese is a red Italian wine grape variety named after the Latin sanguis Jovis, which means “Jupiter’s blood.” Though it is native to most of central Italy, from Romagna to Lazio, Campania, and Sicily, it is best known outside of Italy as the sole component of Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino, as well as the primary component of the blends Chianti, Carmignano, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, and Morellino di Scansano, though it can also be used to make varietal wines like Sangiovese di Romagna
