Poggio Scalette 2019

Poggio Scalette 2019

Poggio Scalette takes its name from the landscape, which is characterized by dry, stone walls supporting terraces on which the vineyards and olive groves are planted. From a distance the impression is of a series of stairs climbing the slopes of Greve. After the death of its previous owner, Poggio Scalette remained abandoned for years until Vittorio Fiore, one of Italy’s most famed winemakers, discovered the property in 1991 with his wife, Adriana. In 1996, 42 additional acres of land became available, enabling them to expand. It was discovered that the plot of land known as Il Carbonaione was the first area to be replanted after World War I (1914-1918), which means these vines, more than 90 years old, are a rare example of the original clone of the famous Sangiovese di Lamole variety in the Chianti Classico area.

“What impresses me most about the 2019’s is their exceptional balance… The wines soar with aromatic intensity and show fine tannins with terrific depth, all with medium-bodied structure.” – Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

Four wines are produced:

  1. Il Carbonaione from the old vines of Sangiovese di Lamole.
  2. Capogatto, a Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot.
  3. Piantonaia, made from 100% Merlot.
  4. A Chianti Classico.

We have represented Poggio Scalette as their UK agent since the 2012 vintage and can honestly say these are the best value for money Super Tuscans available!

“Despite its superb track record for aging and pedigree, Carbonaione, Poggio Scalette’s old-vine Sangiovese, remains one of the great under the radar wines in Tuscany.” – Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

The 2019 Il Carbonaione is silky and racy in the glass. Scents of new oak are a clear sign the 2019 doesn't quite have the density of the very best years, but Il Carbonaione has a brilliant track record of aging. Let's see what happens here. Ripe red/blush fruit, sweet spice, mocha and rose petal linger nicely. [Antonio Galloni, 19/07/2022]

Antonio Galloni

The 2019 Piantonaia, 100% Merlot, offers good depth and density in the mid-weight style of the year. Black cherry, plum, licorice, mocha, cloves and incense all take shape in this savory, potent Merlot. I would give the tannins a few years to soften. [Antonio Galloni, 19/07/2022]
