Wine of the Week - Montefili of Chianti Classico

Vecchie Terre Di Montefili winery is located on the highest hill outside Panzano in the heart of Chianti Classico in Tuscany. Like many native wines, the Sangiovese grape is their focus, but the winery has also mastered blends that use international grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon. The winery also experiments with small plantings of other varietals that add depth and structure to their unique blends. With a production of just 35,000 bottles a year, this is truly a 'boutique' winery, but with a bold distinction. It is an estate that 'listens' to the land, using an honest and holistic approach to truly express the power of nature. In winemaker Serena Gusmeri's own words: "Every single parcel of land is a world in itself with its own singular history. Our goal is not to be intrusive, but to allow the grapes and the wine to express the environment and discover their true potential."
