Podere San Donatino (Castellina in Chianti) was bought in 1971 by Léo Ferré the great French poet and singer, now there's his wife Maria Cristina Diaz with their children to manage the winery. Spontaneous fermentations, wild yeasts, prolonged maceration - about three weeks - though the wines stay “sur lie” for several months. This Chianti Classico Poggio ai Mori is aged only in stainless steel while the Riserva does age in older wood. It's a 100% of a nitty-gritty sangiovese, edibles almost, nourishing even to the nose; mellow and sincere just a perfect pairing with some peasant but refined bread and salami (pane e salame), quietly singing "Les Anarchistes" facing the Tuscan sunset among you, the always empty glass and the Chaos out of the universe.

Not my best, it is a good Chianti and you can easily find its characteristic drinking it, but need to become "adult", good price anyway!

Round to bodied wine. Fresh strawberry notes on the nose and attack. The body reveals slightly woody aging notes that blend well with the fresh fruit. The final is frank. Nice simple bottle, perfect with vegetarian Italian cuisine (Eggplant a la Parmigiana for example)

Vin rond à moyennement-corsé. Notes fraîches de fraise au nez et à l’attaque. Le corps révèle des notes d’élevages légèrement boisées qui se marient bien au fruit. La finale est franche. Jolie bouteille simple, parfaite avec la cuisine italienne végétarienne (Aubergine à la Parmigiana par exemple)
