Description

2014 vintage: Monteraponi's 2014 Chianti Classico Riserva Il Campitello offers impressive surprises. I would not have expected this level of finesse and fine elegance from a vintage that delivered so many challenges in terms of adverse weather and lack of summertime luminosity. This Riserva takes it all in comfortable stride. It offers a dark and more robust taste profile with black fruit, leather and tobacco. The mouthfeel is thin and compact for sure, but what it does not deliver in terms of power, it compensates with in finesse. Score: 91 points -- Monica Larner, Vinous, Apr 2017

2013 vintage: Campitello is one of three single vineyards on the property. The vineyard is the oldest at 45 years, and is completely isolated from others by forest. Soils here are mainly clay and marl at altitudes of 420 meters above sea level and average vine age of 40 years. It ferments without added yeast after long maceration on the skins. It then ages over two years in French and Slavonian oak, followed by concrete where it naturally decants prior to bottling. The blend is 90% Sangiovese, 7% Canaiolo and 3% Colorino. Campitello is both a staff and client favourite. There is density and power in this wine, with its firm tannins and high acidity with bold fruit and intense aromatics of spice and herbs. Paired best with Tuscan meat-based dishes, especially game.
