Overview

Situated in the hamlet of Pisignano overlooking San Casciano in north-west Chianti Classico region (close to Antinori), Poggiopiano has been owned by the Bartoli family since 1993.

The family now has 20 hectares of vines, which lie 300 metres above sea level on a flat-topped hill in the Florentine Valley. The limestone and marl soils here are perfectly suited to the sangiovese grape. Father Beppe, now in his eighties, is assisted by his sons: Stefano, who makes the wine with the assistance of an oenologist, and Alessandro, who manages the estate and controls sales.

The winery is a restored nineteenth-century cantina, and contains both cutting-edge equipment and old cement vats that still produce excellent results. The family produces five wines, including a single-vineyard Chianti La Tradizione, designed for longer ageing than the Society's Exhibition Chianti, and a sought-after wine called Rosso Di Sera, which is made with sangiovese and colorino, and which is declared as a Vino da Tavolo. The company also produces grappa and olive oil.

Winemakers AttilioPagli and Valentino Ciarla make wines that reflect their origin but which are full of ripe, approachable fruit.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Poggiopiano è stata acquisita dalla famiglia Bartoli nel 1993.

The history. From the beginning, ours has been a story composed of simple things wholly dominated by a love of tradition and a desire to reaffirm and broaden our commitment to Sangiovese and other native varieties.

Sangiovese, an irascible, capricious and stubborn variety, is still capable of absorbing the characteristics of the soil in which it grows, transforming the limestone and marl that had always impoverished this land into marvellous essences, which are the region’s most sumptuous and representative expression.

Our wines are produced in a restored 19th century cantina furnished with cutting-edge avant-garde technology, but which also uses equipment that most have by now abandoned, such as the cement vats that are still capable of guaranteeing excellent results today.

Passion for quality. At Poggiopiano are born five great wines, two grappas and an extravirgin olive oil. We dedicate our most attentive and rigorous care to each of these products to ensure that they always measure up to our high standards in light of the many sacrificesmade to create them.
