89 Points - Luca Maroni, 2017
16/20 - Walter Speller, JansisRobinson.com 2017
"Deepish, garnet-hued red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is finely concentrated with elegantly presented aromas of bitter red cherry and berry fruit along with notes of fresh and dark herbs, and lifted dark-red florals. A little shy in expression, this has vinosity and good depth at the heart. Medium-full bodied, the palate has a rich, sweet and harmoniously presented core with integrated flavours of dark-red cherry and berry fruit entwined with subtle notes of dark herbs and dark-red floral element. This is smooth and seamless in flow, the palate featuring very fine-grained, powdery tannin extraction with balanced acidity. The fruit sweetness carries the wine to a soft, lush, sustained finish. This is a rich, harmonious, and integrated Chianti with dark-red cherry and berry fruit melded with dark herbs on a seamless flowing palate. Match with fine roasted red meat dishes over the next 5-6+ years. 100% Sangiovese fruit from the Pisan Hills, Peccioli, fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged in wood."
Poggio Nicchiaia, a young-spirited and energetic agricultural company, is situated in a magnificent Tuscan estate of hundreds of acres in the hills about 40 km south of Pisa, close to the town of Peccioli. They are located in the gentle, undulating Pisan hills, with an elevation of no more than 200m and a soft landscape and mild climate influenced by the currents of the nearby coast, rich in Etruscan history. The soil is a very interesting compound of marine origin, rich in fossils with a sandy-silt-clay texture.
In this setting blessed by nature, Poggio Nicchiaia has about 50 hectares of very well exposed vineyards with an average of 5000 plants per hectare, of which the Tuscan Sangiovese variety is by far the most numerous. The technologically advanced winery is in Montelopio, a pretty village with a feel of times past, a few kilometers from Peccioli.
Poggio Nicchiaia is passionate about producing wines that offer a modern interpretation of Tuscan traditions. An exquisite evolution of taste, not dictated by fashion but by the quest for enduring pleasure.
