Poggio delle Rose Castell'in Villa Riserva 1998
This wine is made purely from a selection of our own Sangiovese cuttings, which have then been planted in this particular vineyard, which gives its name to the wine. It has been vinified according to the high standards and special methods used here at Castell’in Villa and then stored in new French oak barriques for more than 18 months.
The wine is a combination of ripe fruit and tannin. Even in its youth it has a complex intensity combined with the host of soft tannins.
Its characteristics are in line with other Castell’in Villa wines but in this case more concentrated. The wine displays both the generous cherry fruit and the earthy spicy characteristics that you will find in Castell’in Villa Chianti Classico Riservas combined with smoother but still plentiful tannins.
