It dates back to 1971, the first production year of Chianti Monticello. It has always been appreciated for its qualities of fresh wine and a good drink. It still continues to act as a great, pure and simple, unpretentious table wine.

The bottling of the new Chianti Monticello 2012 is scheduled for end-of-period harvest, which will replace the excellent production of 2011 (88/100 on the Veronelli Guide). The Monticello 2012 was produced in a very sunny and warm year, which led to a perfect ripeness of the Sangiovese grapes. The quality will be higher.

Moreover, even if it cannot be considered organic, the grapes were treated with procedures related to organic production, or rather just by using products made of copper and sulphur and without the use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides and insecticides. The quantity is estimated at about 10,000 bottles.
