Monteraponi, Chianti Classico 2020Regular price $29.98
Antonio Galloni, June 2022
The 2020 Chianti Classico is a wine of real pedigree. Deep and yet also translucent, the 2020 captures all the personality of this rugged property. Bright saline and mineral notes drive through a core of red Sangiovese fruit, with hints of blood orange, sage, mint, tobacco and incense that add layers of dimension. I would give the 2020 a few years to soften, as it is a serious wine that needs time to be at its most expressive.
