Piero has crafted another beauty in 2019. This wine, that he calls his 'business card', is one of the most reliably delicious and complex wines you will find for under £20. Bursting with ripe cherry fruit, with that characteristic cherry skin 'snap', but with depth and savour, this is classic Sangiovese from a true master. Fresh with amazing acidity, match this to a fine ragú or simply pull the cork, pour a glass and let yourself bathe in all that Tuscan sun. L&S (Apr 2021)

Lea and Sandeman have long been renowned for finding some of the most interesting producers in Italy, and here we have another example. Beautifully expressive and generous, this wine bursts with brilliantly vibrant cherry fruit and finishes with that satisfying Chianti bite. Wild Tuscan herbs intermingle with notes of dark bitter chocolate, fleshy but controlled; the overall impression is one of racy excitement. Sarah Kemp, The Wine Conversation (Oct 2021)
The 2019 Chianti Classico is dark, fleshy and super-expressive. All the elements come together so well. Succulent red cherry, spice, sweet floral notes and blood orange are all kicked up a few notches. In 2019, the Poggerino Chianti Classico is especially inviting.

Radda in Chianti. 100% Sangiovese. Spontaneous fermentation in concrete tanks while the wine spent 35 days on the skins. MLF and aged for 12 months in large oak casks and tonneaux, followed by eight months in bottle. Certified organic. Lustrous crimson. Exciting savoury, chalky minerally nose with a layer of ripe cherry fruit. Distinct sweet raspberry and tangy cherry fruit with beautiful, coating clayey tannins. Conveys a sense of lightness and purity. Very long and layered. (WS) 14% Drink 2021 – 2028 Drinking range: 2021 - 2028 Rating: 17.5 Walter Speller, www.jancisrobinson.com (Jun 2021)
- 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.
