Made from 100% Sangiovese. Only the very best bunches of Sangiovese grown on the estate vineyards are picked to produce this Reserve. A careful vinification process lasting 20 days, carried out in keeping with tradition, is followed by lengthy ageing in small, French oak barrels for at least 21 months. After bottling, the wine matures for a further three months before release. The Chianti Classico Reserve is deep ruby red with a bouquet of ripe fruit, cinnamon, cloves and wisteria. Dry and assertive on the palate, it is well-balanced in texture with fine-grain tannins and a pleasant fruity note. Especially good with grilled and roast meat, and mature cheeses.Winemaker's notes(Sep 2014)

Poggio Bonelli

A relatively large estate by Chianti standards, covering over 800 hectares of which 83 are under vine, located right in the heart of the classico district. Part of an investment portfolio the estate is run with little expense spared in the pursuit of making a truly representative wine of the region. This investment extends to the employment of Carlo Ferrini as oenologist, whose rather more deft touch these days, ensures that the true character of the region and the grape speaks through the wine.
