Monte Bernardi Colli Della Toscana 2016
- Textured, savoury
This wine is from the wonderful and terroir-focused producer Monte Bernardi, based in Panzano in Chianti, and run by the talented and meticulous Michael Schmelzer, who manages all of their vineyards using biodynamic principles (organically certified).
This ‘Toscana’ is the result of what the producer call “subjective conflicting opinions of style and what constitutes a Chianti Classico Riserva”. Essentially, the authorities of the region deemed the wine too elegant for the Riserva classification. Well, elegant is fine by us. This medium-bodied and mineral-laced wine is an absolute delight - full of cherries, spice and a nice dusting of tannin. It saw an extended period of two years in oak and is at the start of what we think will be a few years of very good drinking. Decant and serve with Bistecca alla Fiorentina for best results.
Full price $80.00 from the producer.

Ah...Tuscany. The home of rolling hills, extra virgin olive oil, Steak Florentine and, of course, Chianti. Everything here is about the earth, and it shows through in the produce. Earthy, vinous, purely rustic and unadulterated. Some of our most enjoyable experiences have come from here. They don't generally come cheap, but they're well worth it.
