The 2018 Chianti Classico Riserva Bugialla is a bold, dramatic wine. Ample and generous in feel, the 2018 wraps around the palate with serious density that continues to build through to the finish. Black cherry, mocha, lavender, licorice and spice fill out the layers. This is an especially rich, heady style for Radda, and it works so well. Drinking range: 2024 - 2038 Rating: 94 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Sep 2021)

*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.

Deep ruby. Fine, concentrated red-fruit nose with balsamic, peppery top notes. A good mouthful of sour cherry interwoven with firm, chewy tannins. Real substance and depth and finely balanced. Drinking range: 2024 - 2036 Rating: 17.5 Walter Speller, www.jancisrobinson.com (Jun 2021)

Poggerino

- 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.
