Poggiotondo, meaning round hill, is the family estate of Alberto Antonini, established in 1969 by his father Carlo in the Chianti DOCG of Tuscany. Alberto has spent the past decade replanting the vineyards and transforming the property into one of the best in the region. Alberto’s ultimate recognition came in 2015 when the Decanter magazine named him one of the Top 5 Winemakers in the World
.90% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot
Owing to the proximity of the Mediterranean, the western part of Chianti region has a milder climate resulting in a good balance of the wines.
The 2013 Chianti Riserva is one of the best wines made by Poggiotondo. Dark cherry, plum and spice are all given an extra kick of creaminess by the addition of 10% Merlot in the blend. Beautifully textured and expressive, the 2013 offers terrific density and impeccable overall balance. deep garnet red in colour, intense complex aromas of dark berry fruits, green leafy herbs and a dark chariness fill the glass, the mouth is consistent with the complexity of the aromas, dark berry fruits are quickly surrounded by savoury herbs and spices with hints of tar, complimented with fine juicy tannins which fill the mouth and a long dry minerally finish.
