2018 Vintage | 100% Sangiovese - Organic farming
94 pts. Michael Godel, Wine Align
"...stylistically Piedmontazine in origin, long maceration and from a really wet and cool vintage. Always elegant, always a matter of vineyard rows that ripen just bit earlier, better and with phenolic completion as compared to the rest of Piero Lanza’s fruit. Chewy, especially for the vintage but also layered and palate caressing. This has the no lo so of Chianti Classico, the umami found in just certain wines of understanding and humility. Lanza gets it and that’s important. It means he cares. Bravo Piero. Tasted March 2022." - Michael Godel, Wine Align
Poggerino is a small, organic family run winery located in Radda, the heart of Tuscany’s Chianti Classico production zone.
Piero Lanza is one of Chianti's greatest young ambassadors. A qualified oenologist, a very competent agronomist and a brilliant winemaker. The estate consists of 106 acres of vineyards, olive groves and woodlands.
