Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and crisp
Its light brick color announces a nose of dark fruits, spices and cloves with roasted aromas. The palate is round and nervous with character and coated tannins.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
Do you know ?
Following the regulations established by the DOC Italian appellation system (the equivalent of the French AOC), the Chianti must be comprised of a minimum of 80% of Sangiovese.
Domain and appellation
Owned by some of the most prominent families of the Siena province since the middle age, the Poggio Bonelli domain stands out through its ancestral savoir-faire.
- Terroir: Located on hillsides in Castelnuovo Berardenga, the vineyard lays on clay and limestone soils and benefits from a southern exposure.
- Vinification: A 10 days fermentation (26°C) in stainless steel tanks is followed by a maceration of 5 to 6 days. The wine ages in steel vats in the winter following the harvests.
