(3/20/2022) "Planted in 1984, Bugialla is a 4ha plot at 500 metres on stony Galestro soil. Owner Piero Lanza picks the larger bunches first for the Chianti Classico and leaves the smaller bunches to ripen longer for the Riserva. Just bottled, the 2019 is shy but with coaxing, aromas of herbs and lavender emerge. Tight on the entry, it expands with a soft ripeness of charming brambly fruit, succulent with compact chalky tannins. Intricately textured and long. Drinking Window: 2023 - 2034."
(2/9/2023) "The key word here is balance. The organic Poggerino 2019 Chianti Classico Riserva Bugialla (with 10,400 bottles made) shows classic lines with fresh primary fruit, medium-rich concentration and lots of harmonious fruit versus spice. The results are vibrant and bright, and you definitely taste that distinctive freshness that is a hallmark of Radda in Chianti. Drink 2022 - 2030."
