Description

Fattoria Poggerino Chianti Classico (N)uovo 2019

Poggerino Chianti Classico has a bright ruby red colour. Pop open the bottle and discover notes of earth, graphite, tobacco and hints of fruit. It is extremely complex, sweet, with persistent tannins.

The Chianti Classico “nUovo” of Poggerino is a 100% Sangiovese that has the particularity of finishing the refinement in cement EGG where it remains for at least 8 months. There is therefore no passage in wood, but the goal is clear: to let Sangiovese express itself at its best. 


After a careful selection in the vineyard the grapes are destemmed and pressed. The alcoholic fermentation begins without the addition of selected yeasts and proceeds at 28°/30°C. The entire process of vinification and maceration take place in concrete tanks for approximately 35 days with pumpovers and manual punchdowns. In December the new wine is racked to a cement egg of 6,5hl where the malolactic fermentation takes place. After ageing for 12 months the wine is bottled. The wine is aged for a minimum of 8 months before sale.
