Montenidoli Chianti Colli Senesi “il Garrulo” 2018
One of the most recognized names in the wine world and one of its
most loved personalities, Elisabetta Fagiuoli and her partner, Sergio Muratori, came to San Gimignano in 1965 and set about creating one of the most special and unique places in Italy. Montenidoli is a 200ha organic farm with 24ha of vineyards, olive trees and vegetables planted in its center. The estate’s vineyards are comprised of two primary soil types. In the highest vineyard, where Sangiovese and Colorino are grown, we find terra rossa and the oldest identified Triassic soils in Italy. On the slopes, we find limestone and seashells. These will be some of the most distinctive wines you taste. All of her wines age beautifully, but there is something very special about the way the Vernaccia wines age. These wines are unfiltered and unmanipulated with crazy-low amounts of sulfites. This is what you can do with perfect fruit and a drive that never stops, which, Elisabetta never does.
