Monteraponi is quickly gaining a following within sommelier circles and in top restaurants across the coasts of the US. It's now allocated per account and customer in NYC and California, and what we got 3+ cases of last year is now down to a single case. This pure expression of Sangiovese and native Italy has been likened to mid-age Burgundy in a way that usually involves evoking the revered Soldera and Stella di Campalto. Consider this a rival to Montevertine's "Pergole Torte" or Isole e Olena's "Cepparello", but with an even more raw, traditional and savory bent. This is a single vineyard Sangiovese blend sourced from high elevation vineyards in Chianti Classico (Radda). The remainder of the blend is filled in by Canaiolo and Colorino. The aging process is classic, with 36 months in large Slavonian botti. Level up your Sangiovese game today :)
