Poggio Molina




The winery, under the supervision of oenologist Dr. Stefano Chioccioli, has carefully researched the geology and composition of the soil to identify the vines in Tuscany best suited to the climate and territory, always with a view to producing great wines that reflect the characteristics of the place. The wines of Poggio Molina are the result of blends between

SANGIOVESE: It is the Tuscan autochthonous vine par excellence: its origin is most probably Etruscan, cultivated since then in the area between the North of the Tiber and the South of the Arno. It is a vine that changes its expressive characteristics considerably according to its cultivation and is, therefore, a tangible expression of the soil in which it grows. It is present in many of Poggio Molina's wines precisely to recall the link with the territory. (Bucinello, Vinobono, VignaRossa, Chianti DOCG, Lo Scopaio)

MERLOT: Native to Gironde, an area in the south-west of France, it is cultivated particularly in the Bordeaux area. It arrived in Italy during the 1800s, spreading first to the North and then to other regions. A vine that finds great expressive power in the soil and climate of our territory. Present in Poggio Molina's barriques, it gives them great strength and softness, roundness and body. (LoScopaio, LeCaldie, Il Bosco delle Monache)

CABERNET FRANC: Also originating in Gironde, it has become very popular in Tuscany in recent years. It is a vine that gives to the wine herbaceous scents, that expressly recall the land of cultivation. It is the main grape variety of our LoScopaio, a balanced expression of the union between vegetable and fruity hints. (LoScopaio)

CABERNET SAUVIGNON: It is one of the most widespread vines in the world, originating in the Bordeaux area. It gives intense coloured wines, of great quality, rich in tannins and aromatic substances, predisposed to long ageing. Its structure allows it to develop a complex and fascinating bouquet over time. For all these reasons it is, together with Merlot, part of the blend used to make our Le Caldie. (Le Caldie)

ALICANTEBOUSCHET: The Alicante vine is certainly of Spanish origin. In 1400 it was brought to Sardinia during the Aragonese domination and from there it spread to other regions of Italy and France. Its berries are extremely colourful and, like Valdarno's Colorino, it is used together with those vines that are naturally not loaded with colour to reinforce it. Its structure, however, also allows it to be used on its own. (VignaRossa, Vinobono).

TREBBIANO: The Trebbiano toscano vine has common origins with the other vines of the Trebbiani family, known in Italy since Roman times. Their name derives from "Trebula", that is, farm (Pliny the Elder describes a "Vinum Trebulanum", which, according to this interpretation, stands for "village wine" or "vino casareccio"). It gives the wines a strong acidity which, in the tradition, is softened in the blends by the fruity notes of Malvasia. (The Arrogant)

CHARDONNAY: Chardonnay is one of the most widely grown white grape varieties in the world. Its origin is in the Burgundy area and its incredible variety of aromatic components emerges in different ways depending on the soils and climates where it is grown. This is why our Chardonnay becomes a unique product, inextricably linked to our territory. (Chardonnay)

MALVASIA: The name Malvasia is used to indicate many grape varieties, geographically distributed throughout Italy, which, although of different origins, all have a spicy fragrance of musk and apricot and rather high residual sugar. The name "Malvasia" derives from a contracted variation of Monembasia, a Byzantine stronghold on the rocks of a promontory south of the Peloponnese, where sweet wines were produced that were then exported throughout Europe by the Venetians under the name of Monemvasia. The Malvasia Bianca Lunga vine has existed in Tuscany for centuries and was part of the original recipe for Chianti, completed by Bettino Ricasoli in 1870. It is a typical expression of Tuscan white wine, which differs from northern whites precisely because of its greater softness and roundness. (The Arrogant)
