Poggio Bonelli Chianti Classico Riserva 2016

Castelnuovo Berardenga, Siena, Tuscany, ItalyWow. What a great year and a delicious Chianti Classico Riserva. Classic black cherry with perfect spicing all supported by lively energy that penetrates the palate. Licorice, plums, peppers, and forest floor are all present in exquisite balance, daring you to drink one glass after another. It was perfect with grilled chicken but would be equally excellent with mushrooms and pasta. This 95/5 mix of sangiovese and other traditional grapes all grown at Castelnuovo Berardenga (Siena) is a wine to buy and cellar and drink over the next decade.Tasted: 28 June 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 39.99 estimated retail Producer: Tenute Poggio BonelliDistributors: Enoteca Bacco Importers
