About the Producer

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. His aim is to make wines with a strong sense of place, which exemplify the very best from Chianti.

Vineyard and Winery

The fruit for this wine come from vineyards in the Tuscan village of Cerreto Guidi near the town of Empoli in the Chianti area. The vineyards are located on a south-west facing slope at 100 meters above sea level. The soils here are of marine origin, calcareous with a strong presence of white sea shells that impart elegance and complexity to the wines. The vines are 16 years old on average, trained with vertical shoot positioning and Guyot pruned.

Once at the winery, the grapes were carefully selected before being destemmed and gently crushed. They were then transferred to concrete tanks where spontaneous fermentation took place with indigenous yeasts for around two weeks, followed by malolactic fermentation . After fermentation was complete, the skins were gently pressed in a pneumatic press to extract the juice and then transferred to a combination of cement tanks and 54HL large untoasted oak casks to age.

Great organic chianti

Chianti is one of the most popular and best known Italian red wines, with its characteristic garnet colour and good balance of red fruit, tannins and acidity. Chianti goes well with most pasta dishes, pizzas, antipasti and a variety of meat dishes. We recently had osso bucco for dinner and this chianti was a perfect accompaniment. Give it a try, it’s very reasonably priced and its ORGANIC!!!
