Intense, with moderate sweetness and lively acidity buoying walnut, dried peach, salted butter and caramel flavors, this is expressive and builds to a long walnut-and-caramel aftertaste. Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

Few vintages have expressed all the virtues of the Tuscan coast’s climate as eloquently as 2016. An almost perfect combination of sunshine, warm summer days and cool nights, with just about enough rain to slow down the vine’s growth without making them suffer from drought have led to one of the purest expressions of Le Volte dell’Ornellaia, combining perfectly ripe...

The Quercia al Poggio estate is situated in the heart of the Chianti Classico district at an altitude of around 400 metres, surrounded by rolling hills and olive groves which thrive in an ideal microclimate; within the 100 hectare estate there are 15 hectares of vineyards, half on the hillside overlooking the north valley towards Barberino Val d’Elsa and half looking south towards Castellina.

The structure of the limestone and clay soil with sections of schist and calcareous-clay galestro, and the special location of the vineyards afforded by the geological formation of the hill itself, ensure sunlight and low humidity while the woodland setting encourages a healthy site climate.

The vines have been gradually replanted since 1997, and Sangiovese has been joined by plantings of ciliegiolo, colorino, canaiolo and malvasia nera, following thorough analyses of the soils to maximise the natural potential and create truly expressive varietal and terroir driven character. The Rossi brothers Michela and Vittorio have a meticulous approach to winemaking and create wonderful every day drinking Chianti that is a firm favourite with restaurateurs and private customers alike.

Dating back to the 18th century, Fattoria Quercia al Poggio was once a rural village home to a small community of farm workers.
