Poggiotondo is located in the western part of Chianti, on the hills that connect the Montalbano with the Arno Valley. This region is more directly influenced by the Mediterranean, which gives Poggiotondo a milder climate than others in Chianti.
The soils at Poggiotondo have a marine origin with plenty of limestone fossils (seashells), which have a strong impact on the wine flavours.
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.
