The Monte Bernardi vineyards are situated in the hills of Panzano, an area recognized as one of the premier sites for Chianti Classico. The Monte Bernardi name dates back to 1085 and today the estate encompasses over 53 hectares, with vines planted on the rocky shale soil (Galestro) unique to the area. The Schmelzer family purchased Monte Bernardi in 2003, and the estate has been certified organic (and practicing biodynamic) since 2004. “Tzingarella” is a blend of 40% cabernet sauvignon, 40% merlot, 15% cabernet franc, and 5% colorino. Evoking a Super Tuscan in style, it offers up smoky floral notes around a core of cherry, cranberry, and currant flavors. It is full-bodied on the palate with a lightly balsamic character and firm, well-integrated tannins. Certified organic.
