Quercia al Poggio Chianti Classico
Quercia al Poggio Chianti Classico is produced in limited quantities from grapes grown to certified organic farming protocols. The estate releases a single Chianti Classico from a selection of the cellar’s finest sangiovese and other traditional native grapes. A small proportion of wine from sangiovese only is bottled as Chianti Classico Riserva, which receives longer maturation in oak and ageing in glass.
