Al Poggio – Chardonnay di Toscana – Wine Advocate – 91 Points
The 2015 Al Poggio is a pure expression of Chardonnay that offers a great sense of freshness and crispness. The bouquet opens to linear aromas of citrus, white rose and summer peach. There are mineral overtones and you might also detect a hint of dried sage, saffron or oregano. Fruit is harvested from a vineyard site that is rich in limestone soils and located at 500 meters above sea level. Both these factors contributed to the sharpness and freshness of this very versatile white wine.
