    I'm not sure where my adoration for Sangiovese originated but I suspect it was during a trip to Italy a mere 5 years ago. I spent much of my time eating at some fantastic out-of-the-way restaurants. I never requested any specific wine other than "red wine", which was almost always Sangiovese and I was never disappointed. My first time tasting the wines of Poggerino was here at the store, only earlier this year, it was the 2015 Chianti Classico. I was instantly transported back to that trip. Now we have this stellar Riserva in the store and I am jonesing for another visit to the region. This is classic old school Chianti Classico: black cherry, herbs, tobacco. There is all the structure here with excellent balance of acid, tannins and well integrated oak that does not overpower. If you had the Chianti Classico when we had it in stock, the CC Riserva is definitely worth spending the extra dollars for. I love these wines.

    This was one of the surprise customer favorites at our June Italian consumer tasting and it also made quite an impression upon the staff. It's a classic Sangiovese aged in large casks that is especially inviting now as the warmth of 2015 brought riper than normal fruit and a subsequent approachability. The richness and purity may very well win over those reluctant to embrace Chianti Classico.
