Poggiotondo Organic Chianti 2014


Organic Chianti.  Not something I've seen before, I think, but why not.  The aromatics are pleasingly typical of sangiovese in its Chianti guise.  Dust, earth and ripe black cherries.  The palate is mid weight, textural and savoury.  Lovely Chianti for $20.

I think there's a few producers, they just don't necessarily label it such, one leading example (with an Aussie link) is Riecine, which I believe is certified Biodynamic (Tom Shobbrook worked there before returning to the Baross)
