Poggio al Sole - Chianti Classico 2016 (90 TSW)
Poggio al Sole is know in Tuscany but also internationally for its authentic Sangiovese based Chianti Classico wines.
Poggio al Sole lies in the very heart of Tuscany, in the glorious countryside between Florence and Siena, between the towns of Tavarnelle Val di Pesa and Greve in Chianti. Documents in the archives of the ancient abbey of Badia a Passignano nearby testify to the claim that wine and wine oil were produced on this estate as early as the 12th century.
The approximately 24 hectares of vine slopes face south-east to south-west and are approximately 320-480 metres above sea level.
Only 400-600 grams of grapes are harvested from each square meter. The organic wines are vegan certified and produced with the loving care of the owners, sustainable farming and decades of experience.
