Australian Wine Companion Poggerino review

Recensione dalla rivista Australian Wine Companion

The world of wine is a

 

big palette from which

 

to make a selection of just

 

20 wines, and with such

 

diversity of styles coming

 

into the Australian market

 

thanks to our strong dollar,

 

consumers are spoilt

 

for choice. Many wines

 

chosen here are consistent

 

performers year in, year

 

out, so if you struggle to

 

find the vintage mentioned,

 

other vintages won’t

 

disappoint. There are

 

many countries that have

 

missed representation here,

 

but they do feature in our

 

imported reviews, so keep

 

reading and experimenting

 

to find styles of wine that

 

suit your own tastes.

Poggerino Chianti

 

Classico, 2009

 

{ Tuscany, Italy }

 

Piero Lanza is so passionate about producing

 

wines that express his unique terroir in Rada in

 

Chianti that he refuses to entertain the notion

 

of expansion so he can control everything in

 

the vineyard and the winemaking, and it shows

 

in his wines; the 2009 rendition of his Chianti

 

Classico is a generous, forward and sumptuous

 

wine with dark cherry, bramble and attractive

 

anise notes, and while there is an apparent

 

softness, there are ample fine-grained tannins

 

providing a long and harmonious finish.
