Podere Il Pozzo Chianti Rùfina Vendemmia 2010

Member Review by vin0vin0:

This is still a very young chianti. Nice nose of dark berries and dried plum, a little on the green side, medium tannin and fresh dark fruit. Definitely got better with some air but needs a few more years in the bottle to mellow out.

The farm is made up of about 50 hectares of woodlands, vineyards and olives. Ten of these hectares are devoted to a specialized vineyard with an average elevation of 300 m and south-east exposure: this entire plot is listed in the official Chianti Rufina registry of vineyards. In keeping with our commitment to produce wines that reflect the uniqueness of our territory, we have chosen to cultivate Sangiovese grapes, a vine species that best represents its peculiarity. The old promiscuous vines have been substituted with specialized, intensive vineyards, with the exception of the “Vigna Vecchia” or old vineyard which is more than 50 years old. This vineyard has been carefully preserved and receives constant attention in order to safeguard the ancient autochthonous clones of colorino, canaiolo, mammolo and others. This ancient Tuscan colonial complex is located on the hills above the town of Rufina. Numerous documents can be found in the Museum of Vines and Grapes in the Villa di Poggio Reale in Rufina that attest to the existence of the “Podere il Pozzo” far back into history.  The small hamlet was home to a group of Jesuit monks until the beginning of the 18th century and in 1998 the farm was purchased by the Bellini family who renewed the farm's wine production. The farm is run by Gianfranco Caselli, whose passion for viticulture has been a driving force toward cultivation systems that maintain maximum respect for the environment and Tuscan traditions, making it possible to obtain wines of great quality and personality.
