Winemaker's Notes:

The Pian del Ciampolo, composed of Sangiovese with a tiny amount of Canaiolo blended in, is the basic red wine of the estate. It sees 18 months of aging in large barrels and is the most precocious of the wines.

MONTEVERTINE lies within the heart of the Chianti hills, in the community of Radda at an altitude of 425 m above sea level. Documents show that the site has been dwelled since the 11th century. Traces of the original construction, which undoubtedly was of defensive nature and which later on had been converted to a rural housing, are still preserved. Our wine-making procedure is extremely traditional and it has been never been varied since the very first vintage. The grapes are harvested by hand and then fermented in glazed cement vats, without temperature control, and the must is topped up twice daily in order to keep the top marc moist and to obtain a slow extraction of the tannins from the skins. After the racking off, the malolactic fermentation is also carried out using cement vats. At the end of the malolactic fermentation, our wines are stored in wooden barrels over a period of approximately two years.The wines will never be filtered and the topping-up method, without any pumps, is used for the bottling. For the ageing of our wines we use oak barrels from Slavonia with a 5.5 to 18 hectolitre capacity and 225 litre Allier casks. Read less

Montevertine's Pian del Ciampolo bottling is made for earlier drinking. This is a delightfully lithe and light style of Sangiovese, with fresh red cherry fruit aromas, notes of red currants and anise. With its perfectly lively fruit, balanced out by earthy tannins, this is what Sangiovese should always taste like.



The Pian del Ciampolo, composed of Sangiovese with a tiny amount of Canaiolo blended in, is the basic red wine of the estate. It sees 18 months of aging in large barrels and is the most precocious of the wines.
