100% Sangiovese from the famed Viacosta vineyard – organically grown grapes, hand tended vines, hand harvested, fermented with natural yeasts and aged in large neutral botte grande (foudre).
This is another superb wine; though this is exclusively from their Viacosta parcel; it is overall more concentrated than the wine above. From an exceptionally good vintage it today it drinks really beautifully, imparting elegant cherry and plum fruit and very attractive savory notes of tobacco and spice that complement and add more dimension on the finish. It is a superb, complex Chianti that will improve for many, many years. A beauty. Andrew Guard – Importer.
Enrico Pozzesi sources this sangiovese from Viacosta, a south-facing amphitheater-shaped vineyard in Castellina in Chianti. The wine rested for three years in large oak casks, developing notes of tobacco, cured meat and black pepper that layer over its dark cherry and black currant fruit. With its powerful tannins, this will appeal to Brunello lovers. 93/100 Wine & Spirits Magazine
