Castellare di Castellina Chianti Classico Riserva Vigna Il Poggiale 2009
"The single-vineyard 2009 Chianti Classico Riserva Il Poggiale is huge. Black fruit, smoke and licorice are some of the notes that burst from the glass in this extroverted wine. The Poggiale is a bit juicier and richer than the straight Riserva, but the two wines are as differentiated as they often are. Still, it is impossible not to admire the sheer balance and harmony of what is in the glass." – Wine Advocate
The aroma is really superb; toffee and caramel notes with a little menthol and undertones of peach and red fruit. Rich mouth that is well balanced, with tomato and berries on the finish.
