    Villa Poggio Salvi, Chianti Colli Senesi Caspagnolo 2016

    Exceptional vintage, evaluated by the Consortium of Brunello with 5 stars. Rainy spring, not very hot summer, characterized by high variations between day and night temperatures which continued also in autumn with very high temperatures during day time and cool temperature at night. This thermal excursion helped the grapes reach the right level of acidity, colour and perfume.

    Amazed by the beauty of the landscape, Eng. Pierluigi Tagliabue decided to purchase the company in 1979, and began the restructuring of the estate. Today, Villa Poggio Salvi counts 21 hectares of vineyards in Montalcino, all planted with clones of Sangiovese Grosso. The optimum altitude, between 300 and 500 meters, the soil rich of clay and the breeze coming from the Tyrrhenian Sea, maintain the soil and the climate perfect for vineyards. In 1998 a new estate in the Chianti region, “Casavecchia”, has been added to the company, to produce Chianti Colli Senesi, Tosco and Lavischio, our IGT wines based on Sangiovese and Merlot.

    Villa Poggio Salvi structure and modernity is a company that looks to the future with passion and competence, under the wise direction of Pierluigi Tagliabue and his grandson Winemaker Luca Belingardi.
