Chorus Poggio Nibbiale
From the best grapes of Poggio Nibbiale prime vineyards, an extraordinary wine is created.
This cuvée elegantly unites two of the most important grape varieties of the old world. Instead of leveling their differences, the distinct character of Cabernet Sauvignon and the Sangiovese grape are elaborated to complete each other. The wild tannins of its youth are gently tamed by new oak wood. In this manner, they form the powerful scaffold for rich fragrances of lingonberry, cassis, blackberry, wild fennel, and even pepper. During the long and warm finish notes of tobacco and cedarwood appear as well as slight scents of chocolate.
Poggio Nibbiale only vinifies one thousand bottles per vintage with all their patience, dedication and the very passion, which has distinguished winemaking at Poggio Nibbiale from the beginning.
About The Producer, Poggio Nibbiale :
The Buchheim Family has always dreamt about having a vineyard in Tuscany.
Their long-cherished wish was fulfilled when the wine estate Poggio Nibbiale was founded in 1998.The dream to grow wine amidst the impressive scenery of southern Tuscany became reality.
In the following years thwy started cultivating 11 hectare of land, established a modern winery and restored the medieval cellar from the 13th century below the church of San Giovanni Battista in Scansano.
The estate’s major part is however governed by nature, the Mediterranean macchia with its almost impenetrable vegetation, old cork oaks, genista in full bloom and wild olive trees.
Poggio Nibbiale’s vineyards are located in the hills of the Maremma between Scansano and Magliano in Toscana, 300 meters above the Tyrrhenian Sea with a magnificent view of the Island of Giglio, Elba, Montecristo and the Monte Argentario peninsula.
Right from the start, they decided for organic viniculture and refrained from farming practices that aim primarily at a high yield. It is important for them to endow the wines with aromatic depth, refinement and complexity.
Poggio Nibbiale philosophy of winemaking is simple: No show but quality, no vogues but sustainability and most importantly: passion, dedication and a true appreciation for our land and its natural riches.
Their passion and dedication has allowed them to create magnificent wines, such as: Morellino Di Scansano, Morellino Di Scansano Riserva Tommaso and Chorus.
