Poggio della Torre is produced in cooperation with Cesare Salvadori, who established the winery in 1930. Today the winery is in hands of the family's third generation, where Francesco — who graduated from the Enology School in Florence — is in charge of winemaking and production. The winery is located in the Chianti production area in the hills near Vinci, the famous city where Leonardo was born.
This fine Tuscan red offers pleasantly "rustic" black-fruit aromas and earthy nuances. Bright red fruit flavors are balanced by snappy acidity. A straightforward Chianti in the Old World style, made to enjoy with pizza, simple pasta dishes (especially ones with a tomato sauce), and meat dishes such as osso buco, leg of lamb, or lamb chops.
