Wine of the week: Organic Chianti Riserva Monterotondo 2011

I had a chance to meet the producers of an organic Chianti during Vinitaly. Their riserva is simply a full expression of terroir and elegance. Smooth and with a really long lenght, this is the Monterotondo Chianti Classico Riserva 2011 Seretina.
Based of Sangiovese and a small percentage of Malvasia Nera, this Chianti has a great complexity with hints of ripe red fruits and black pepper. It can pair well with a wide variety of dishes, including red meats and aged cheese.
