“For the vintage 2016 only, the wine that has always been and was to be our Monte Bernardi Riserva Chianti Classico, from the 50 year old plus vineyards and classic Galestro soils, will be declassified and labelled as Monte Bernardi Colli della Toscana Centrale Rosso IGT.This is a result of subjective conflicting opinions of style and what constitutes a Chianti Classico Riserva. The wine passed all of the analytical tests for a Chianti Classico Riserva, but it did not past the tasting panel portion. It was deemed too light in color and structure. We are of course disappointed that these subjective elements have led to declassification, especially when our opinion is that the 2016 couldn’t be more wonderful and true to our Classico style, which is, by nature, not intensely colored yet entirely natural in it’s Sangiovese hues and elegant in structure.” (Michael Schmelzer, winemaker at Monte Bernard)
