Poggiassai IGT Magnum ’07
Balanced, Complex, Long Finish, Soft Tannins
Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese
A beautifully balanced intense ruby red wine, most appealing nose and soft on the palate with a lavish texture.
Ruby red with warm penetrating aromas of red fruit, mushroom, tobacco pepper and chocolate.
Does not fail to reach expectations! On the palate it is soft with complex flavours, supported by a well balanced, elegant fabric of tannins which develops continuously with ageing. Best served at 16 degrees C.
Food Match: Ideal with grilled and roast red meats and medium to mature cheeses.
The Poggiassai IGT Magnum is a wine with great personality. Never too exuberant in alcohol and freshness.

A property that was sought after by some of the most important Sienese families, Poggio Bonelli has belonged to numerous different families throughout the centuries. It was first owned by the Spennali family during the Middle Ages, and passed into the hands of the Piccolomini family in the second half of the 16th century. In the following century, probably for dynastic reasons, it became the property of the Landucci family; and at the beginning of the 21st century it came to belong to the Banca Monte Paschi di Siena, the most ancient Italian bank in the territory of Siena.
Today the wine estate is owned by the Banca Monte Paschi di Siena, which acts as shareholder, while the management is carried out by a team of professionals with long-standing experience in wine-making. The end result is a human, dynamic, and solid business.
Among the warm, typically Mediterranean Chianti hills and Crete Senesi plains, Castelnuovo Berardenga, site of the Poggio Bonelli Estate, is a place that guarantees its vines excellent breezes and the circulation of air that limits the risk of water stagnation and humidity. Here, the soil is very particular, so particular that it justifies the enormous heterogeneity of expression of grapes of the same variety on relatively close estates: a land of “transition’ between clayey, sandy soils (sea bottoms that rose to the surface during the Pliocene age) and non-typical Chianti ones (originated with the breakdown of rock).https://www.poggiobonelli.it/en/
