About

Product Description:

"Estate-grown, no added yeast, nutrients, or malolactic bacteria are used, fermentation takes place in cement tanks, followed by about 25 days of maceration, the wine is aged in large oak only for about 16 months, and is not fined or filtered. The vines are planted in soils that are 'full of calcareous stones, rich in alberese and galestro’. Monteraponi is in Radda in Chianti; 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." -Importer
