Monte Bernardi Retromarcia Chianti Classico 2018 – Magnum
- Medium bodied
This 2018 Chianti from the wonderful and terroir-focused producer Monte Bernardi is an absolute treat. Based in Panzano, the estate is run by the talented and meticulous Michael Schmelzer, who manages all of their vineyards using biodynamic principles (organically certified).
It’s made in a traditional style of Chianti Classico - so expect a medium-bodied, fruit-driven wine with a firm structure and great length. According to the producer: “The Italian word Retromarcia means more to us than its literal translation ‘to back up’ or ‘to reverse’, it has been our aim to produce intensely typical and expressive wines from Tuscany’s historic zone – Chianti Classico, using only traditional grapes. With the name Retromarcia, we are emphasizing a return to the natural elegance and charm of Sangiovese.”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

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.
