Montebernardi Chianti Classico Retromarcia 2013


If you're Italian and you're putting your car into retromarcia, you're putting it into reverse.  For Monte Bernardi, the meaning is deeper.  It signifies "a return to the natural elegance and charm of Sangiovese", in this case blended with 3% Merlot and 2% Canaiolo.

Smooth and deceivingly easy, this is one you'll find yourself reaching to refill your glass with...and finding the bottle empty.  One of the best wines at this price from anywhere.
