Like many Italian names, the name of Monteraponi is more just the name of the winery. Its name comes from the medieval village of the same name with three ancient towers dating back to the 10th century. It falls just outside Radda located in the zone of Chianti, prime territory for Sangiovese. While the entire estate is 200 hectares, just 20 are devoted to vines and olives. The rest of the property is painted with oak and chestnut trees creating an amphitheater, a natural way to incorporate biodiversity among the vines and a healthy ecosystem. The current family has been farming here since the 1970s, and are often part of the same conversation as the Montevertine wines.
