Il Poggio Chianti Classico Riserva 2013

One of the icons of Tuscan wine. A big wine for patient collectors. The winery has been keeping an archive of Il Poggio since 1962, and the vertical tastings of past vintages show that the 1967 and 1968 are at their peak. 2013 was a balanced, classic year with a long growing season. This wine is the opposite of the white. Its aromas are defined by ageing. Distinctive, salty, umami-like flavours – soy sauce, balsamic vinegar – meet mulberry, sour cherry and strawberry notes. It is characterised by impeccable balance, incredible depth and vigour. It has pronounced tannins that are not aggressive, even at this young age. The tasting of this wine is almost like reading – it talks to us and demands our attention.
