Chianti Classico Riserva

Chianti Classico Riserva is a deep ruby red wine, with a bouquet packed with ripe fruit, cinnamon and cloves. Dry and assertive on the palate however softened by the delicate sweetness of the French oak.

Only the best bunches of Sangiovese grown on the estate are picked to produce this Riserva. Truly a wine of great quality and elegance.

Food Match: Perfect for grilled and roast meats and mature cheeses.

Wine production in Poggio Bonelli has been carried on since the 16th century. Sought after by the most prestigious noble families of Siena, the Poggio Bonelli estate was run by different owners in the course of the centuries. Poggio Bonelli is now part of a large Estate (including the Chigi Saracini Farm) called MPS Tenimenti.  The property consists of 2300 acres of land (most are arable lands and olive plants).

The Terroir of Castelnuovo Berardenga helps in producing wines that tend to be most ripe and richest  tasting, differently from other areas of the Chianti Classico where wines could have a very delicate aroma  and flavour, or characterized by their structure, firm tannins and concentrated flavours.

Temperatures are 1 /1,5 degree Celsius (average) higher than in the northern part (close to Florence) and the soil is mainly characterized by some tuff and clay components with underneath a rock skeleton part.
