2019 Chianti Classico
12 x 750
At the southwestern edge of Chianti Classico, the hillside vineyards around Castellina in Chianti become less steep, lower in altitude and warmer than those in the heights of neighboring Radda.
The Sangiovese-based wines here also tend to be approachable (think sunny splashes of cherry flavor). Monica Raspi, a rising-star producer at Fattoria Pomona, embodies that easygoing spirit.
