The 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva Bugialla is another stellar wine in this range from Poggerino. Freshly cut flowers and sweet, red berry fruit give the 2017 a surprising amount of freshness. Medium in body, with terrific energy and plenty of verve, the 2017 Riserva is positively stellar. Rose petal, blood orange and spice overtones linger on the racy, exquisite finish. In a word: impressive. Drinking range: 2020 - 2042 Rating: 95 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Sep 2020)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Lustrous mid ruby. Backward on the nose with just a hint of oatmeal. With aeration shows more and more depth. Full spread of ripe fruit. Real substance and then great lift of tangy acidity. Finely sculpted tannins gaining in power on the finish. Quite a beauty. Drinking range: 2022 - 2034 Rating: 18 Walter Speller, www.jancisrobinson.com(Apr 2020)

- 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.
