Bright bramble, dark cherry fruit, nice oak mocha & coffee. Rich, juicy with lovely fruit grip, plum, blackberry, cherry good flesh, but ripe and delicious. L&S (Sep 2015)

Everyone needs a good Chianti for under £20 and Poggerino's 'business card', as the owners call it, is one not to miss. The vibrant dark cherry and floral scents lead to a pure and fresh palate with deliciously juicy black fruit concentration. A fresh, pure and elegant style of Chianti.

Radda in Chianti. 100% Sangiovese. Lustrous mid ruby. Light yet pure raspberry nose and similarly beguiling, pure and lithe raspberry fruit on the palate with fine, firm tannins. Long and fragrant and a little tannic on the finish. Drinking range: 2017 - 2021 Rating: 17+ Walter Speller, www.jancisrobinson.com (Mar 2017)
- See our blog post on Victoria Moore's recent interview with Piero Lanza HERE -
Piero Lanza is one of Chianti's greatest young ambassadors. A qualified oenologist, a very competent agronomist and a brilliant winemaker, his wines have improved immeasurably over the past few vintages. Located in the heart of Chianti Classico district the estate consists of 106 acres of vineyards, olive groves and woodlands.
The winery is one of the properties of a large estate which used to belong to Prince Ginori Conti, a descendant of one of Florence's oldest families. Floriana Ginori Conti inherited the winery from her father in the 1970s, and began in 1980 to produce a Chianti Classico with the "Poggerino" label.
In 1999 she handed over the property to her two children, Piero and Benedetta Lanza, who had been managing it since 1988. Only 11 hectares are planted with vines, almost all of which are Sangiovese. Piero is a passionate agronomist, firmly of the opinion that the work he does in the vineyard reflects not only in the quality of his wines, but the individual 'terroir' of their property, and to this end is now working completely biodynamically.
Another of our producers described him to us 'Ah yes, Piero, the one who knows all his vines by name'. Planted on clay and 'galestro' soils his wines are marked by minerality, acidity and bright fruit. Biodynamic and certified organic.
