Monteraponi is all about tradition: long macerations, natural fermentations, aging in large old barrels. A true "insider's" wine from what may well be Chianti's most distinct commune, Radda. Their 12 ha of vines are high up (400-500 meters) in rocky soils with plenty of Chianti's classic limestone, alberese. They farm indigenous grapes only, and with minimal inputs. This 100% Sangiovese is perfect for anything tomato based to pick up all those lovely tomato paste, wild cherry, and oregano notes in the wine!
