Rocca di Castagnoli Chianti Classico Riserva “Poggio a’ Frati” 2018

Rocca di Castagnolis enkeltmarks-riserva fra Poggio a’Frati-marken. En sagnomspunden mark, en halv kilometer over havet og tætbeplantet med gamle Sangiovesestokke. I midten af marken et gammelt kloster, der lægger navn til marken. Undergrunden er kalkrig og stenet, hvilket giver mineralitet og struktur til vinen, der er notorisk kendt for at kunne lagre mindst et par årtier. Vilde blomster, småbitte kirsebær, urtelikør, balsamico, læder, rosmarin osv. – kompleksiteten er endeløs og i denne årgang er det en vin for livet!

Den lille landsby Castagnoli i hjertet af regionen har været hjemsted for vindyrkning i omkring 1000 år – og det imponerende bygningsværk, der skuer ud over dalene, har været i ejerforhold i stort set alle Toscanas navnkundige adelsfamilier. I dag laver Rocca di Castagnoli nogle af områdets mest anerkendte vine – og dermed vine på Sangiovese-druen, når den er bedst og mest autentisk. Nye metoder og tiltag koeksisterer med erfaring og respekt for terroiret.

Great sharpness of fruit for the Riserva from Calì family’s estate. Notes of red currant to the nose, then touches of pepper and carob. The drink is marked by compactness and density, with brackish tannins, fruity-spicy return and nice freshness.

Here's a wine that shows a nice jump forward in quality since the last time I tasted it. The certified organic 2018 Chianti Classico Riserva Poggio a' Frati (made with 95% Sangiovese and 5% Canaiolo and finished in a combination of botte and tonneaux for 18 months) reveals a generous, mid-weight approach. It shows dark concentration and plenty of varietal freshness and a bit of kick or tightness from the tannins. Another few years in the bottle should soften them. The wine offers dimension and length, although its personality feels quite austere. The fruit represents a special selection culled from a 12-hectare site at a cool 450 to 500 meters in elevation.

The 2018 Chianti Classico Riserva Poggio a'Frati is an attractive, mid-weight wine for the estate. Chushed flowers, tobacco, mint, cinnamon and sweet dried cherry give this perfumed, mid-weight Riserva a good bit of complexity. The 2018 is perhaps a bit diffuse, but it offers plenty of character as well as immediacy.

Bright, slightly lifted aromas of cherries, plums and some blue fruit here. Tight and fine-grained with a flavorful mid-palate. It remains elegant and bright. From organically grown grapes
