Agricola San Felice Chianti Classico Riserva Poggio Rosso 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2008 Chianti Classico Riserva Poggio Rosso is a big wine. Sweet dark cherries, flowers mint and licorice come alive in this vibrant, beautifully delineated Chianti Classico. The 2008 impresses for its inner perfume and pure sense of energy. It will require a few years to soften but is shaping up to be delicious. This is a terrific showing from San Felice. Gorgeous, strikingly pure aromatics redolent of succulent cherries, violets and roses linger on the intensely fragrant finish. The 2008 Poggio Rosso is 80% Sangiovese, 10% Colorino and 10% Pugnitello that spent 20 months in 500-liter French oak barrels...93" WA 06/12

More specifically, since it became part of the Gruppo Allianz S.p.A., San Felice’s viticultural ambitions have grown in quantity and quality, focusing in particular on scientific research. At the same time, it has turned its efforts to hospitality services, livestock breeding, and environmental protection. Read less

The nose showed dark red and black fruits with wood spice, intense florals and raspberry undertones. On the palate, I found tart cranberry and raspberry fruits and dark chocolate against structured, medium-bodied textures. The finish was spice and full of tart red fruits. This wine was very enjoyable on this day but should continue to mature beautifully for, at least, another ten to fifteen years.

Ein ausgewogener, gehaltvoller, nachhaltiger und fruchtiger Rotwein. Granatrot mit leichten Violettreflexen. Mittelkräftiges Bouquet. Vorab Beerenfrüchte (Cassis, Rote Johannisbeere) und etwas Steinobst (Zwetschge). Dazu Würze (Gewürznelke, Pfeffer), leichte Röstaromatik (Rauch, Kaffee) und erdige Noten. Im Gaumen leicht süsslicher Antrunk. Dann noch leicht präsente Säure und Gerbstoff, was recht typisch ist für eine Riserva-Qualität. Im Rückgeruch werden die Aromen nochmals präzise wiederholt. Mittellanger Abgang.

Ein ausgewogener, gehaltvoller und nachhaltiger Rotwein. Rubinrot mit leichten Violettreflexen. Eher dezent intensives, aber gleichwohl komplexes Bouquet. Etwas Dörrfucht (Dörrpflaume) und beerige Noten (Heidelbeere). Dazu etwas Würze (Lakritz) und Röstaromen (Russ, Rauch), sowie leicht animalische Düfte (Leder, Stallgeruch). Im Gaumen im Antrunk trocken. Dann recht füllige, harmonische Struktur. Der noch leicht präsente Gerbstoff und die kräftige Aromatik dominieren den Wein. Der Abgang wurde vom Degu-Team als mittellang eingestuft.

In der Nase komplex, würzig-fruchtig. Im Gaumen dicht, füllig, harmonisch, komplex, lang.
