The Monteraponi 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Il Campitello is a gorgeous wine that delivers both power and elegance. These are two seemingly opposite characteristics that, in truth, complement each other beautifully, especially in the classic vintages such as this. Dark cherry fruit and forest berry are followed by light touches of wild rose and fresh potting soil. The wine is authentic and pure. It transports you to this beautiful corner of Tuscany with rolling hills and thick shrub brush, home to wild boar and roe dear. This wine will become more silky and streamlined with more bottle aging, and the wait will be absolutely worth it.
