Wine Spectator:

"This red offers a rich texture full of cherry, plum, tobacco and tea flavors. Harmonious and lively, with the right amount of tannins lining the long finish. Drink now through 2020. 2,500 cases made." Reviewed June 2016

Product Description:

"The Chianti Rufina area, located in the hills to the east of Florence, is the most famous of the seven subzones that fall under Italy’s iconic Chianti DOCG, closer in style to the prestigious Chianti Classico DOCG than its contemporaries.

"Because of altitude (which accounts for more pronounced diurnal temperature variation) and distance from the Mediterranean coast, Rufina has a more continental climate that makes Sangiovese-based wines in possession of good tannins and acidity.

"'Poggio Gualtieri' is a Riserva made with 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot, aged partly in large barrels and partly in French barriques fro 15 to 18 months. Female wine-maker Barbara Tamburini oversees the winemaking. Rich black ruby red in color. The bouquet is intense with red berry fruit overshadowed by cedar and spice. The nose is warm with hints of vanilla and spices resulting form the oak ageing. The palate is full-bodied, well-structured, yet clean and fresh. Poggio Gualtieri will pair well with traditional Tuscan cuisine, grilled meats, pasta dishes with hearty sauces, and aged cheeses. Consistently excellent and a great value!" - Importer
