Montechiaro - Castello Poggiarello

Montechiaro (intensely perfumed and elegant), an incredible full-bodied and vivacious wine with dry tobacco, green tomato leaf, spices and liquorice aromas and bouquetis made with 100% Cabernet Franc grapes and carries the name of Vineyeard where it came from.
It's situated in the farm's highest terraced area, (next to Montebruno), and is enclosed by a stone wall.Our Cabernet Franc acquires an intense and elegant bouquet from the iron red soil.
Montechiaro ages for 12 months in small oak barrels and is allowed to rest and refine bottled for a minimum of six months. Like Montebruno, Montechiaro is made only in the best harvest years when these vineyeard can offer their maximum expression with noble pure fruit, elegance and ageing potential.
