Product Description

The 2016 Monteraponi Chianti Classico offers intense aromatic notes of violet, green pepper and raspberry. The strong minerality on the palate blends wonderfully with the freshness given by the calcareous, stony and marly soil. Long-lasting, full-bodied and structured, this elegant wine is still enjoyable right now.

Varietal Composition: 95 Sangiovese, 5 Canaiolo
Appellation: Chianti Classico DOCG
Aging: 16 months in large French and Slavonian oak
Farming Practices: Certified organic

91 Points - Wine Advocate
"You can count on Monteraponi for fine and delicate red wines from this beautiful part of Tuscany. The 2016 Chianti Classico (95% Sangiovese with 5% Canaiolo) is fermented with ambient yeasts and is then aged in large oak casks for 16 months. The wine offers beautiful fruit intensity with finely tuned aromas of dried cherry and raspberry backed by toasted almond and garden herb. The wine is tight and linear in terms of mouthfeel but intriguing nonetheless. You will appreciate the bright acidity that comes thanks to high-altitude vineyards in Radda in Chianti." -ML, 10/31/18
