Description :

Producer: Poggio Scalette became autonomous wine-producing estate in 1991 when Vittorio Fiore and his wife Adriana acquired several plots of land and a rural building on the hill of Ruffoli, in the township of Greve in Chianti, in the very heart of the Chianti Classico appellation. The property consisting of old stone farmhouses, vineyard land and olive groves. The estate is directly run by wife Adriana and son Jurij with the overall supervision of Vittorio Fiore. On these terraces and on an ample plot of vineyards, called by the local peasantry "Il Carbonaione", are planted the Sangiovese vines which - as has been discovered - were the first to be planted in the decade following First World War, after the desctruction of the largest part of Europe's vineyards by the phylloxera plague which struck in the late 19th century. We are dealing, therefore, with vines that have reached the venerable age of more than 80 years and which constitute, without the slightest doubt, one of the rarest (if not the sole) example of a Tuscan vineyard with this age, prevalently composed os an important memeber of the large Sangiovese family know by the name of "Sangiovese di Lamole" and born in the territory of the Chianti Classico appellation. Durign the course of the planting operations fot he latest vineyards, principally Sangiovese, a small parcel of Merlot (5000 square meters - or bit less than two acres) to be used for the Piantona wine was planted along with four rows, respectively, of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Merlot (1000 vines each) and utilized for Capogatto. In another microarea, approximately 1500 vines of Chardonnay were planted, to be used for Richiari.
