Podere Poggio Scalette Chianti Classico 2010
"The 2010 Chianti Classico (Sangiovese) is layered with dark fruit, spices, licorice, grilled herbs and new leather, all supported by firm tannins. Dark red cherries and flowers reappear on the attractive finish. This is a lovely effort. In 2010, the Chianti Classico comes across as a baby Poggio Scalette. Not bad, to say the least. Readers on a budget should not miss this striking Chianti Classico. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016. "

Podere Poggio Scalette became an autonomous wine-producing estate in 1991 when Vittorio Fiore and his wife Adriana Assje di Marcora acquired several plots of land and a rural building on the hill of Ruffoli, in the township of Greve in the very heart of the Chianti Classico appellation. The property came from the division of an inheritance and the sale of property consisting of old stone farmhouses, vineyard land, olive groves, pasture land, and woods which had been abandoned years previously after the death of the former owner. The estate was enlarged shortly afterwards in 1996 with the addition of an adjacent property endowed with functional cellars and ample working spaces creating, with this acquisition, a 40 hectare (100 acre) property. On the terraces where the original vineyards are located is a plot called by the locals "Il Carbonaione". Planted here are Sangiovese vines which were the first to be planted in the area in the decade following the First World War (1914-1918) and after the destruction of the largest part of Europe's vineyards by the phylloxera plague in the late 19th century. Vittorio and his family are dealing with vines that have reached the venerable age of more than 80 years and which constitute one of the rarest (if not the sole) example of a Tuscan vineyard with this age. Other Sangiovese vineyards here were planted during the 1960’s and 1970’s. And in 1996 they discovered and bought another ancient vineyard. The Chianti Classico featured today uses vines with an average age of 20 years that are harvested in October. Fermentation, both alcoholic and malolactic, is done in lined cement vats. Aging for 10 months is also done in lined cement vats.
