Poggerino Chianti Classico 2009

Though never far off the pace, the 2009 vintage appears to be a return to strong form of this producer's ever reliable Chianti Classico.

A bright medium intensity ruby in colour.  Blackcurrants, spices, herbs and dried rose petals about sum up the medium intensity aroma of this wine.  On the palate, medium-high acidity and body are coupled with medium length, spices and black fruits.  This is a balanced wine that will suit drinking over the next few years.  86 points.
