Monteraponi

The Monteraponi estate, spanning 200 hectares of which 12 are under vine, boasts some of the highest vineyards in the Chianti Classico area. The estate itself is a medieval hilltop village dating from the 10th century. It seems fitting that the wines are made in the tradtional Chianti style: racy, fresh and supremely elegant.

chianti classico

Chianti Classico

A seriously elegant chianti. Made in the classic style, with firm yet silky tannins providing the frame for sangiovese's cool, racy red-berried and rose hip fruit profile. Subtle hints of pepper, cedar and mushroom add complexity. Delicious and approachable, vintage after vintage.

Dark, powerful and brooding in style, showing black cherry, plum, spice, liquorice and leather, Il Campitello retains fantastic freshness and verve from the high elevation. A gorgeous wine that will age well for years to come.

Monteraponi

The Monteraponi estate, spanning 200 hectares, of which 12 are under vine, boasts some of the highest vineyards in the Chianti Classico area. Located in the Radda subzone, vines are planted up to 570 metres above sea level on albarese and galestro limestone soils. All work is done in the traditional way, with hand harvesting, spontaneous fermentations in concrete and ageing in large used French and Slavonian oak casks. The estate itself is a medieval hilltop village dating from the 10th century. It seems fitting that the wines are made in the tradtional Chianti style: racy, fresh and supremely elegant.
