Poggio Vignoso, Poggio Vignoso Chianti D.O.C.G.
(PO-jo veen-YO-zo kee-AHN-tee)

 

Tasting Notes: Fattoria di Pugliano's “wine of the people,” Poggio Vignoso as it is known at home, is a simple, delightful crowd pleaser. An exceptional, food-friendly wine that can be enjoyed with virtually anything. This wine is a remarkable value, it is surprisingly firm, and admirably balanced with intense dried cherries and floral notes. With such consistent quality, it is no surprise that this is one of our best sellers.
