Awards and/or Press Quotes
Awards and/or Press Quotes Robert Parker, 94/100: "The Chianti Classico Riserva Il Poggiale shows great energy and momentum. It opens with masculine tones of leather and fire-cured tobacco that are absolutely stunning next to the black currant and jellied blackberry. The flavour intensity is of special note. The finish is elegant, silky and long. This is a terrific effort." - James Suckling, 94/100. - Wine Spectator, 93/100.
