The Poggiotondo estate is situated in the hills to the northwest of Empoli…
in western Tuscany. These hills are south and southwest facing, and are planted primarily with Sangiovese. Alberto Antonini’s estate has been certified organic since the 2014 vintage. As a result, he has released a Chianti ‘Bio’ as his new entry level wine.
Deep garnet red. On the nose, dried oregano aromas are entwined with dark cherries and a smoky undertone. Ripe cherries on the palate are balanced with slightly astringent grainy tannins so typical of traditional Chianti, with a vibrant, fresh acidity on the finish.
