The Castle of Monterinaldi settlement, in the commune of Radda in Chianti, in the heart of the oldest historical area of the Chianti Classico, is situated near an ancient Etruscan route. Eighteen single Vineyards, 38 terroirs, 55 hectares, as self contained as a turtle: Sangiovese of different clones, Canaiolo, Colorino, Malvasia Nera, Petit Verdot, Syrah, Gamay, Merlot, Cabernet-Sauvignon, Cabernet-Franc, Malvasia Bianca, Trebbiano, Chardonnay. Monterinaldi today is an estate in conversion to the organic management which will become organic certified from 2017 vintage.
This is a single vineyard wine with a brilliant ruby red color, on the nose a beautiful complexity of very pretty aromas of blackberries, blueberries and hints of dried meat. No oak here, this wine is aged in cement vats which allow you to smell and taste all the aromas and flavors that come from the grapes and the limestone soil of the Boscone vineyard. This is a very flavorful wine with medium body, fine and integrated tannins with fresh acidity that contribute to its composition while still maintaining elegance and drinkability. Long and persistent finish.
