95% Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo

Certified organic. 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 strong minerality on the palate blends wonderfully with the freshness given by the calcareous, stony and marly soil. Long-lasting, full-bodied and structured, but enjoyable and not overwhelming on the palate, owing to the silky and soft tannins that bring out the wine’s elegance.

The Monteraponi estate is located in the village of Radda, situated in the heart of Chianti. Fruit comes from vineyards planted at 400-500 meters above sea level and is vinified as naturally as possible (native yeasts in cement tanks, bottled unfined and unfiltered.) The vines are planted in soils that are full of calcareous stones, rich in marl and schist. Fermentation takes place in cement tanks, followed by about 25 days of maceration on the skins. The wine is aged exclusively in large oak botti for about 16 months.
