2017 Fattoria Rodano Chianti ClassicoRed
Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Colorino
DOCG, Organic, Generational Winery
'The Pozzesi family are nestled within Castellina, Chianti among the great winemakers of Tuscany. But unlike their peers, they tend to fly under the radar with a dedication to producing exceptional wines from organically grown grapes, all hand tended using natural yeasts and small amounts of neutral oak aging – a rare find and best-kept secret of Tuscany'.
Gloriously bright vibrant cherry-red in the glass. On the nose, classically seductive Sangiovese aromas of fresh red cherries and sweet tobacco with a very complex lingering perfume. In the mouth it is gorgeous; vibrant, fresh and bright with a fine balance and admirable concentration. The finish is elegant and lingering with gentle sweetness and attractive grip. An impeccably balanced wine that will keep in the cellar. Sangiovese is one of the world's greatest red grapes capable of producing wines of power aligned to grace and definition.
