Poggiotondo's 2021 Organic Chianti has a lively ruby red colour. On the nose hints of dried oregano with aromas of cherry, both red and dark. On the palate the ripe cherry balances well with the full-bodied tannins typical of traditional Chianti, and rises vibrantly thanks to the fresh acidity of the finish.

Winery & Vintage Info

Situated in the heart of Tuscany, between Florence and Pisa, Poggiotondo’s wines are a pure expression of the Chianti region.

Alberto and Alessandra Antonini, following the principles of organic agricultures, grow their vineyards in a natural and balanced environment. Poggiotondo is immersed in an ancient farming landscape with biodiversity context: vineyards, olive trees, figs tree, old fruit plants, very ancient oak trees, cypress, bushes of raspberries and blackberries and exceptional natural beauty.

The soil has a marine origin as can be seen from the presence of limestone fossils ( sea shells) and its composition varies from a more sandy to a more silty clayed limestone. Its origin and the presence of limestone is important for the wine quality because it talks to its energy, vitality and tension that are defining character of their wines.

The 2021 fruit for the Poggiotondo Organic Chianti was fermented with indigenous yeasts. The wine then went through a bladder press before ageing in cement and large untoasted oak casks. Malolactic fermentation occurred naturally. The grapes were de-stemmed and gently crushed then fermented in concrete tanks just with their native yeasts, after two weeks they were pressed and the wine went into large casks and concrete tanks to do the ageing.
