The Monteraponi 2016 Baron'Ugo (made with organic fruit) is one of the banner wines of Radda in Chianti that captures the soul of this cool and elevated subregion. This is indeed a spirited wine that showcases bright berry and wild cherry with crushed flower, dried porcino mushroom and pleasant earthy tones. The bouquet is light and delicate; however, the wine delivers precise and sharp delineation to the palate, where it leaves long, fruit-driven intensity. Pretty tones of campfire ash and spice appear at the back. Baron'Ugo should continue to evolve and improve with time.
