Monteraponi Chianti Classico DOCG - 750 Milliliters

$37.29 each

Tasting Notes: Dried cherry, smoke, tobacco leaf and nutmeg aromatics lead into a wine of medium to full body with rich fruit without being dense. Great backbone of earth and spice. The aroma of sandalwood, red berries, and violets combine with a fresh acidity and long integrated tannic finish. The estate-grown fruit has no added yeast, nutrients, or malolactic bacteria with fermentation taking place in cement tanks.

Estate History: The wine called Chianti came originally from just three villages, Radda, Castellina and Gaiole, located between Florence and Siena. Monteraponi is in Radda; the vineyards are at high altitude (from 400-500 meters above sea level), and the wines are carefully made in a very natural way, which is to say no added yeast, nutrients, or malolactic bacteria are used, fermentation takes place in cement tanks, followed by long macerations (even the Chianti Classico is kept on the skins for at least 25 days), the wines are aged in large oak only, and they are not fined or filtered. Only indigenous varieties are used; Sangiovese principally, of course, with the addition of a little Canaiolo and Colorino. These are vibrant, intensely flavorful, thoughtfully made, distinctive wines, some of the best examples of Chianti Classico.

This is a benchmark Chianti Classico.The vines are planted in soils that are 'full of calcareous stones, rich in alberese and galestro’.
