The most representative wine of the Castello di Poppiano tradition, a selection of “Chianti Colli Fiorentini” of the best vintages, Riserva is matured in oak casks in the cellar of the Castle.

Full-bodied with noticeable tannins and intense but subtle texture and complex aromatic impact, this Italian wine pairs perfectly with grilled or stewed red and white meats and hard cheeses.

Guicciardini

Since 1200 the Guicciardini, one of the most ancient Florentine families, held a prominent position in the social, political and commercial life of Florence.

The hills around the Castello di Poppiano have been for centuries the main site of farming activity by the Guicciardini who, even when involved in the public life of Florence, continued to look after their estates in the country side.

Castello Poppiano is located in Chianti Colli Fiorentini DOCG area. Most of the vineyards are planted with Sangiovese, the main traditional grape for Chianti, with a complementary contribution of Merlot, Cabernet and Syrah. The vineyards on the hills to the right bank of the Virginio creek are devoted to the production of Chianti Colli Fiorentini DOCG, while those on the left bank mainly produce IGT wines.

While Chianti Colli Fiorentini “Il Cortile” and “Riserva” DOCG, together with Vinsanto, remain the winery’s most traditional wines, innovative works are ongoing and new IGT wines are being produced (one of them is Viognier ‘Campo Segreto’).

    One of the best reservas I have tried. The integration of Sangiovese with a hint of merlot is striking, they marry well, first you feel the classic flavors of Chianti, red fruit, here well supported by the alcoholic note that is present but not intrusive, then you feel the softness of the merlot in the finish, the all enveloped by the constant and beautiful perfume given by the barrels, the reserve did its job well. Compliments.
