POGGIO AL CASONE - CHIANTI SUPERIORE DOCG

POGGIO AL CASONE - CHIANTI SUPERIORE DOCG - Tuscany, ITALY - 2013

Vivacious ruby red colour tending to garnet with ageing. Intense and characteristic bouquet, this Chianti Superiore opens with light berry fruit, with violet notes. Round and fruity taste balanced by ageing in traditional casks. Super ripe fruitiness and a soft easy-feel taste, with smooth tannins and medium long finish, are the characteristics of this fine wine.
