Monte Bernardi - "Retromarcia" Chianti Classico 2022 (750ml)


| /

Retromarcia stands out as a Chianti Classico, crafted exclusively from 100% Sangiovese grapes since 2010. The grapes flourish in vineyards rich in shale (Galestro) at 70%, sandstone (Arenaria-Calcare-Pietraforte) at 20%, and limestone (Alberese) at 10%. These vineyards, planted between 2003 and 2010, contribute to the wine’s unique character. The vinification and maturation process echoes the more traditional style of Chianti Classico, yielding a wine that is fresh and fruity, medium-bodied, and beautifully balanced. It boasts a robust structure, vibrant acidity, and a lengthy finish.

The term Retromarcia, translating to "to back up" or "to reverse," holds a significance beyond its literal meaning for us. Our objective has been to create wines that vividly express and epitomize Tuscany’s historic region – Chianti Classico, utilizing only traditional grapes. The name Retromarcia underscores our commitment to revisiting and reviving the natural elegance and allure of Sangiovese.
