Poggio Bonelli Chianti Classico Italian Red Wine 750 mL

$24.99

 88 Points Wine Advocate for 2017 vintage “Boasting a dark color and medium saturation, the Poggio Bonelli 2017 Chianti Classico is an earthy, spicy wine with lots of hot vintage fruit packed in there at the core. That fruit is easy and one-dimensional, but it does reflect the warmth and drought of the vintage with a slightly muddled, or over-simplified approach. This is your go-to pasta or pizza wine.” – Monica Larner

Luminous ruby color. Forest berries, spices, leather, moist earth and dried plum, layered in the aroma. Soft, round taste, well-balanced acidity and clean and persistent aftertaste. Very pleasing, and ready to drink.
