The Wine

This Riserva boasts a brilliant ruby red hue with garnet reflections. It exudes aromas of cherries, red plums, and currants, intermingled with earthy notes, rose petals, and leather. On the palate, it presents a full-bodied experience, exhibiting an excellent structure, firm and integrated tannins, and a spicy finish that lingers.

93 Points James Suckling “Dense aromas of dark plums and black fruit on the nose, as well as some aromatic oak. Medium-bodied with a lovely core of fruit-soaked, velvety tannins, providing good focus and length. This is pleasant to drink now, but will age nicely, too. Drink or hold.”

93 Points Wine Spectator “Rich and evoking cherry, raspberry, iron and spice flavors, this red is backed by vibrant acidity and dense tannins. Balanced and brimming with energy on the long finish. Should hit its stride in two to three more years. Sangioveto, Canaiolo and Ciliegiolo. Best from 2025 through 2043.”

92 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate “This release of 15,000 bottles is among the most pleasantly accessible wines in this portfolio from Castellare di Castellina. The 2020 Chianti Classico Riserva Il Poggiale shows soft fruit, cherry, blue flower and sweet potting soil. The wine is texturally rich but not heavy, and these native Italian grapes always have a lot of fresh acidity on offer, even in a vintage like 2020 that was characterized by hot summer weather.”

About the Wine Maker

In the heart of Chianti Classico, sits the natural amphitheatre of this iconic winery. Low 
yields and rigorous experimentation in identifying the right clones of Sangioveto 
matched to site have enabled Castellare to become world-renowned producers. A 
different bird is pictured on the label each year to represent the wineries commitment to organic viticulture and preservation of biodiversity.
