The Anfiteatro represents the heart and soul of the Montefili estate.

The nose is clean and pronounced with opulent varietal notes of red cherries and mature cranberries. Layers of sandalwood and tobacco with a touch of wet stone complete this captivating bouquet.

The palate is intense, with a cascade of fruits: baked red plums, ripe nectarine and fig. Notes of walnut, cinnamon and smoke adorn a dramatic flavor profile. Thrilling and unique, yet highly approachable with a very long, meditative finish.

The Anfiteatro undergoes spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel tank. It then ages for 28 months in tonneau, then in bottle for 12 months.

Vecchie Terre di Montefili is a lovely 12.5 hectare estate located high in the hills between Panzano and Greve in the heart of Chianti Classico. Grapes have been grown for winemaking for at least 750 years on hills within the farm’s current boundary. In 2015, Vecchie Terre di Montefili passed hands to new ownership with ambitious plans to preserve the sanctity of this land, while projecting it into the future as a phoenix rising in the Chianti Classico zone. Now with the talents of young, pioneering winemaker Serena Gusmeri — her first vintage in 2015 receiving worldwide critical acclaim — something special has begun to take root.
