The Monteraponi Chianti Classico Riserva Il Campitello is among the finest expressions of Sangiovese you will find. Its limited production makes that all the more challenging. The Cru Il Campitello is the oldest planting at Monteraponi exceeding 40 years of age. Elevation here in Radda is 420 meters yielding textbook Riserva from ‘galestro’ soils which is drinkable now but will well endure another decade. Compelling indeed and certainly worthy of a Top 100 designation by the Wine Spectator.

Perfumed and loaded with finesse, this fragrant red opens with heady scents of fragrant purple flower, woodland berry, camphor and an earthy whiff of tilled soil. On the savory radiant palate, bright acidity and sleek tannins accompany juicy black cherry, raspberry and star anise. Drink through 2025.

The 2018 Chianti Classico is fabulous. In 2018, the Chianti Classico is a pretty big wine for this estate, but it's also a serious wine that absolutely needs time in bottle to find its center. Black cherry, tobacco, licorice, cloves and menthol showcase the darker, wilder side of Sangiovese, an impression reinforced by tannins that are potent and burly. I love the 2018 for its weight, substance and faithful expression of a house style.
