The Tenuta Poggio Ai Mandorli is a Chianti Classico, Riserva 2007. The vineyards are surrounded by Almond trees in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, D.O.C.G. Produced since 1934 by expert wine lover Orlando Trambusti, he has passed on his passion to his family, and together the Florentine family selects the best grapes to share in their home country and abroad.
The Riserva is quite a unique wine in character and make, using 90% Sangiovese grapes, together with a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Riserva is aged for a minimum of 18 months in oak casks, and refined for an additional four months in the bottle. An intense ruby red colour, with delicate flashes of maroon, it offers a complex, elegant bouquet giving hints of violet and wild berries. The taste is warm and comforting, with soft, noble tannins that endow the wine with an alluring, persistent character. 13% ALC. 5,000 cases imported.
