Monteraponi Chianti Classico 2006

When we were in Florence at Le Volpi e L’uva, Giancarlo guided us on a wine and cheese tour of Italy (blog post here) and that included this wonderful Monteraponi Chianti.  The wine is 90% Sangiovese and 10% Canaiolo and is aged both in barrels and concrete before making it to the bottle where it sits for another 3 months before distribution.  The wine itself is light, moderately fruity, with a hint of cedar on the finish.  It’s unlike any Chianti I’ve had stateside and I’m stoked that we brought it home; we had Florence in Philly tonight.
