Poggiotondo Organic Chianti DOCG
Deep garnet red. On the nose, dried oregano aromas are entwined with dark and red cherries. Ripe cherries on the palate are balanced with grainy tannins so typical of traditional Chianti, with a vibrant, fresh acidity on the finish.
Poggiotondo is organic certified; all our wines are produced from grapes naturally grown in our estate vineyards. A few years ago we decided to move back to traditional vineyard management, we stopped using synthetic chemicals in order to regenerate the soil and have it alive. We encourage the vines to develop their own antibodies, and we are experiencing healthier vines, better fruit quality, more character and a very likely longevity of centuries of the vineyards themselves. The making of wine is coherent with the principles we apply in the vineyards: we aren’t using any commercial product like yeasts, nutrients, enzymes, cleaning agents, but only hot water and some sulphur, we like having a winery plenty of life where all the microbiology coming from the vineyards can find a nice home to live and do his job.
