Poggio Alloro Chianti DOCG 2014 Product #30149 (In Stock)
Poggio Alloro Chianti DOCG 2014 Poggio Alloro Chianti DOCG 2014

Here’s proof that great farming and straight-ahead winemaking can deliver fine Chianti – and even finer value! – from outside the Classico zone.  More and more Chianti is either all Sangiovese or Sangiovese strengthened with dollops of Cabernet or Syrah.  Here, a family dedicated to natural, organic, farming turns back to Tuscan tradition to make Chianti from an old-school blend of grapes:  Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Colorino and Ciliegiolo.  Sangiovese gives the wine heft and structure, while Canaiolo adds volume, Colorino deepens the color, and Ciliegiolo – Sangiovese’s genetic parent – soft red cherry fruit.

All of this comes together to deliver a ripe, zesty, Chianti that’s very easy to drink.  Ripe black and red cherry fruit forms the wine’s core and gains interest and complexity from accents of crushed violets, red licorice, rich earth, and sweet spice accents.  There’s no oak influence at all, allowing ripe fruit to shine through while retaining outstanding freshness and just the right touch of structure at the end.  A fine party Chianti, for sure, and one that will be as much fun to drink with a big bowl of pasta as with burgers or rosemary-scented pork.

A classic Vernaccia, made from 100% Organic grapes harvested at optimum ripeness and allowed to become wine slowly, naturally, in neutral tank.  Generous with its apple and stone fruit, this gains plenty of complexity from accents of citrus skin, white flowers, and fresh fennel frond.  The lip-smacking fresh finish makes it a great sipper and better still with fish, poultry, and cheese.

Poggio Alloro Vernaccia Nicchiaio 2015 Product #31024 (In Stock)
Poggio Alloro Vernaccia Nicchiaio 2015 Poggio Alloro Vernaccia Nicchiaio 2015

From vineyards in the shadow of the towers of San Gimignano, this is Vernacchia harvested a bit later and given more time on the lees in barrel than Poggio Alloro's "regular" bottling.  Rich, nutty, aromas of acacia flower and stone fruit lead to a palate at once rich and bright.  Layered flavors of sweet pear, apricot, toasted nut and a hint of herb honey are lifted by juicy acids and linger with a hint of mineral across a long, building, finish.

Note: this is a special-order wine. Filling orders for this wine typically takes 2-3 days.
