Many fans of Sangiovese and Chianti Classico in particular which display more restrained, elegant style look to the high altitude vineyards of Radda. Monteraponi prides their production of Chianti Classicos on no additions or subtractions: this means natural yeast fermentations which lends to more complex, distinctive wines. As fans of the pureness and ability of Sangiovese to represent the soil in which it was planted, Monteraponi also avoids the use of new, smaller oak barrels for aging and never fines or filters. 'Il Campitello' is a Riserva level bottling from Monteraponi's oldest plots, more than forty years old. The wine ferments on the skins for twice the time the Chianti Classico does creating a structured wine which will gracefully age for decades. Also lending to its ageability, 'Il Campitello' spends over two years in mostly large Slavonian casks before a finishing period in concrete.
