Chianti Classico Riserva Poggio a' Frati has outstanding complexity, structure and elegance. It has an intense, bright red color and a rich aroma of small red fruits and spices. It has enveloping, complex and lingering aromas that highlight the cherry and ripe Marasca cherry with a pleasant spicy and balsamic finish. Bottle aging gives it an exquisite elegance and mellow flavor. Pair with important roasts, game, mature cheeses and vegetable soups.

The 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva Poggio a'Frati is a heady, expressive wine that is just showing a hint of its potential. More than anything else, I am impressed with the wine's energy and vibrancy, which was a bit hard to come by in 2017. Bright, saline notes lift a core of sweet red berry fruit, chalk, white pepper, mint, sage and dried flowers. The flavors are so vivid in this super eloquent Riserva from Rocca di Castagnoli.

Bright cherry and raspberry fruit is the signature of this tightly wound red. Mineral, tobacco and rosemary accents add depth, and the vibrant structure keeps it all defined. Beautifully balanced and long, echoing the ripe fruit. Sangiovese and Canaiolo. Best from 2023 through 2037. 4,000 cases made, 2,000 cases imported.
