A purple patch for Chianti Classico
18 April 2019

There is no doubting that Mother Nature has been smiling on Chianti Classico these last few years, and with a growing crop of talented winemakers lifting the region out of ignominy – now is the time to start snapping up the produce of the region’s major protagonists. Monteraponi are one of the estates spear-heading this resurgence. Their traditional, hard-working artisanal approach and prime location vineyards make for some of the region’s most mineral, intense and soulful wines. The latest releases from high up in the hills of Chianti Classico’s Radda are 2016 and 2015; two thrilling back to back vintages that are arguably the best wines Monteraponi have ever made.

Of the two new releases 2015 was the hotter and drier vintage but was a year that found its absolute pinnacle in the highest, coolest parts of Tuscany – the estate’s 570 metre altitude, south-east facing Baron d’Ugo vineyard ideally placed to temper the vintage’s warmth. The wine, that emanates from hard, rocky limestone soils is one of Chianti’s most mineral; an intense salinity complimenting the seductive sun-ripened strawberry and raspberry fruits.
