About the Wine
This lovely red Wine created by Piccini is made in the Chianti area of Toscana. This wine is exclusive to Matthew Clark, you won't find it at multiple retailers. Available in 75cl bottles, imported by Gestioni Piccini Srl. Poggio Cheto Chianti Classico, Tenute Piccini is an interesting wine, made from Sangiovese grapes. This wine has a cork closure and is like many wines in our list, this wine is suitable for vegan diets. Rich and intense flavours that are perfect for full-flavoured beef and pasta dishes. This wine is part of our core range.
At its best Sangiovese produces great wines, such as Chianti, Brunello di Montalchino as well as used in blends coined as Super Tuscans. Sangiovese is high in acidity with a sour red cherry fruit character, and sometimes quite earthy with grippy tannin.

The Piccini family live and work in the heart of Chianti. In1882, Angiolo Piccini bought seven hectares of vineyards to produce wines. Mario Piccini, fourth generation, runs one of the most distinctive, dynamic and innovative Italian estates, now converted to organic farming. Together with a selection of drought-tolerant rootstocks, lower density trellising systems, indigenous grape varieties replacing some international ones, aim at a holistic approach towards sustainability practices.
