92pts James Suckling

Sweet berry and cherry aromas and flavors with dried-lemon undertones. It’s medium-bodied, creamy, and refined.

91pts Vinous

The 2020 Chianti Classico is plump, juicy and absolutely delicious. Soft contours wrap around succulent dark cherry, plum, licorice, mocha, spice and new leather. This forward, open-knit Chianti Classico is not terribly complex, but it sure is delicious.

90pts Decanter
On the breezy slope of the Ruffoli hill in Greve, Poggio Scalette’s vineyards extend from 410 to 585 metres on sandy, stony soil. Despite fermentation and ageing in cement vats, scents of sweet spice, clove and nutmeg seem to suggest oak. Dark currant fruit provides a backdrop on the grippy, zippy palate. It's rather angular at the moment but with lots of character and an appealing bitter grapefruit peel accent which lingers on the finish.

Wine Enthusiast

This easygoing red made from 100% Sangiovese opens with aromas of iris, baking spice and underbrush. The juicy, straightforward palate offers sour cherry, black pepper and tobacco alongside smooth tannins.

Winemaker Notes
Bright ruby red in color, a lively bouquet of red fruits and blackberries complement undertones of ripe cherries and pomegranate seeds. On the palate, the wine is fresh and fruit-forward with silky tannins that evolve throughout the finish.

A very food-friendly wine that can be paired with a number of dishes including rosemary roasted lamb, tomato based sauces, and hearty chicken stews.
