The organic Monteraponi 2019 Chianti Classico Riserva Il Campitello is a beautiful wine that expresses itself elegantly, thanks to balanced fruit, good concentration and well-dosed intensity. The wine is a blend of 90% Sangiovese, 5% Colorino and 5% Canaiolo with berries from 55-year-old vines on a mix of schistous galestro and limestone alberese soils. It offers a noticeably darker appearance with aromas of pressed blackberry, button mushroom and blue flower. This Riserva maintains a wild but delicate personality throughout, with a spot of crushed white pepper in a distant background role.

Forest floor, baked plum, new leather and tobacco aromas shape the nose. Elegantly structured and savory, the taut, linear palate is all about focus and finesse, featuring ripe black cherry, crushed raspberry, star anise and grilled herb framed in tightly knit, refined tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced. It’s still youthfully austere and promises great aging potential. Drink 2024–2038.

The 2019 Chianti Classico Riserva Il Campitello is a wild, powerful wine. Black cherry, sage, menthol, gravel, incense and tobacco show the more virile side of Sangiovese off to great effect. This potent, brooding Riserva needs time in bottle to fully come together. Even so, it is pretty impressive in the early going.
90% Sangiovese, 7% Canaiolo, 3% Colorino. Il Campitello comes from a 40-plus-year-old vineyard, the oldest vines at Monteraponi. The soil is rocky and schistous. Fermentation takes place in cement tanks, followed by a maceration of around 45 days. The wine is aged in large oak barrels for around 26 months, and is bottled without being fined or filtered.
