Fattoria Poggerino Chianti Classico 2022

Wine Spectator #45 Wine of the Year 2023 (2021 Vintage)

Piero Lanza believes that great wines are grown not made and his dedication to his 12 hectares of vineyards borders on the fanatical. Within 10 short years, their Chianti Classico had found a spot at #18 on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines of the Year. Last year, the Poggerino CC returned again to the Wine Spectator Top 100, this time in the 45th spot. This year, I have no doubt there will be more big things to come. This wine is unbelievably good. It’s so pure and clean with bursts of cherry and blackberry, some spice, licorice and tobacco. It’s a serious, layered Chianti Classico that pushes the envelope in terms of how good these wines can get.

Original price was: $32.00.Current price is: $27.50.

“The 2020 Chianti Classico is soft, fruity and open-knit which make it a fine choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years. Bright red-fleshed fruit, leather, pipe tobacco and cedar all take shape in this supple engaging Chianti classico from Poggerino. The precision and pedigree here are just unreal.”

Floriana Ginori Conti inherited the winery from her father in the 1970s, and began in 1980 together with her husband Fabrizio Lanza, to produce a Chianti Classico with the “Poggerino” label. The estate has always been ‘organic’. It’s no badge of honor, it’s just how they’ve always done it.

Since 1999, when she handed the reins to her two children, Piero and Benedetta Lanza, the rise has been meteoric. Piero believes that great wines are grown not made and his dedication to his 12 hectares of vineyards borders on the fanatical.

Admittedly, I did lose focus when he went into painstaking detail on green vs brown organic manure-based fertilizer and his unique tests on the proper cycling through of both, for example.

But no one can argue with the results. Within 10 short years, their base Chianti had found a spot at #18 on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines of the Year. Then last year, they did it again, with this wine scoring in the Top 50 in Wine Spectator’s list once again. It’s clear that this is one of the benchmark producers in the region.
