Fattoria di Rodáno is a classic producer of complex yet approachable Chianti. The estate has been a wine producing property belonging to the Pozzesi family since the 16th century. Vittorio Pozzesi had been in charge of the estate since they first began to bottle their own wine in 1967 but now his son, Enrico, manages the winery. The heart and soul of their vineyard holdings is the beautifully situated vineyard of Viacosta, which is a perfect, south-facing bowl of old vines averaging between 35 and 45 years of age. The estate has grown substantially since its beginnings, but still maintains traditional winemaking practices, including hand-harvesting, fermenting using only natural or wild yeasts, and aging their wine in large Slavonian casks, or “botti”. Poggialupi is a wonderful value wine made from grapes sourced from all over the Chianti Classico region. Though it possesses all the bright fruit and balanced acidity of a fine Chianti, it's accessible and ready to enjoy now, composed of 70% sangiovese and 30% merlot, with an enticing balance of fruit, earth, and spice, and a smooth, medium body.
