Chianti Classico Monteraponi 2018 (750ML)
91 Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Chianti Classico (made with organic fruit) is a beautiful wine that reflects the grace and elegance of Radda in Chianti, but it also ventures forth with unmistakable power and richness of fruit. Cherry, black plum and dried blackberry are clearly identified, and the wine follows suit with mild but firm structure and a good amount of phenolic weight and depth. Monteraponi is a historic estate in Radda in Chianti that is counted upon for excellent and elegant wines." 03/21
92+ Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2018 Chianti Classico is fabulous. In 2018, the Chianti Classico is a pretty big wine for this estate, but it's also a serious wine that absolutely needs time in bottle to find its center. Black cherry, tobacco, licorice, cloves and menthol showcase the darker, wilder side of Sangiovese, an impression reinforced by tannins that are potent and burly. I love the 2018 for its weight, substance and faithful expression of a house style."
94 Points, Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast: "Perfumed and loaded with finesse, this fragrant red opens with heady scents of fragrant purple flower, woodland berry, camphor and an earthy whiff of tilled soil. On the savory radiant palate, bright acidity and sleek tannins accompany juicy black cherry, raspberry and star anise. Drink through 2025."
91 Points, Michaela Morris, Decanter: "Monteraponi's Michele Braganti finds similarities between the 2010 and 2018 vintages, from the development of the vines and grapes throughout the growing season to the consistency of the berries' skins as well as the perfume of the must during vinification. Aromas are pretty with great clarity of fresh, invigorating green herbs, forest brush and wild raspberry. The palate is generous with scrumptious fruit and an easy-to-drink fluid texture. Fine, elegant tannins slink across the palate culminating with a sensation of crushed rocks." 2/20
