Best matched with the following food groups

Formerly known as Cerro del Masso after the original name for the Poggiotondo estate, this wine is traditional in style, whilst being fresh and bright. The wine delivers classic flavours of fresh black cherry fruit, and the palate is long, fresh with well balanced tannins and minerality.

At its best, modern Chianti is a far cry from the brick-red, overly acidic and slightly green-tasting examples found in vintages past. These wines are light in texture, with a clear, ruby sheen. Chianti Riservas display notes of mature dark berries, cherries and violets, and sometimes a savory earthiness. With age, this often evolves into cedar and raisins, not unlike aged red Bordeaux. With food, the wines are transformed, as their natural acidity and dryness marry well with heavy meat dishes such as roast pork or veal. Tomato-based pasta, sprinkled with a generous spoonful of Parmesan cheese, also works well. Among my favorite producers are
Castello di Bossi, Carpineto, Poggiotondo, Tenuta Valdipiatta, Selvapiana, Isole e Olena and Frescobaldi. Many of these wines will age for 10 years or more.
Will Lyons, The Wall Street Journal, June 2012

2012 Chianti DOCG
(80% sangiovese, 10% merlot, 5% syrah and 5% colorino del Valdarno): Good full, deep red. Good
lift to the rather Burgundian aromas of dark berries, red cherry, licorice, and earth. Suave, juicy
and fresh, with lovely definition and vinosity giving shape and lift to the sweet red fruit flavors.
Finishes with a fine dusting of tannins and good length. This vintage was tough, but because
proprietor Alberto Antonini didn’t bottle his top wines a lot of that juice ended up here.
Ian D’Agata, Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar, July 2012

Poggiotondo covers 70 hectares on the Western hills of the Chianti region which provides a perfect microclimate for growing grapes. The soil conditions and the ideal exposure of the vineyards to sunlight together with the climate and low yielding vineyard management practice ensure perfect ripening of well balanced and flavour ripe grapes. Alberto Antonini the owner and winemaker at Poggiotondo makes his Poggiotondo wines in a modern style, whilst adhering to the true regional characteristics of the Chianti region in which the grapes are grown. Balance and harmony is the philosophy of all Poggiotondo wines.
