91+ Our Score (6/2017) Monte Bernardi is a small, family-run estate located in the village of Panzano in the heart of Chianti Classico. They only produce wines from vineyards they farm themselves using biodynamic practices, with the goal of allowing the wine to express the land it comes from. This gorgeous Chianti Classico Riserva is 100% Sangiovese that comes from a special single-vineyard named "Sa'etta." It is aged for 24 months in oak casks, followed by another 12 months in bottle, resulting in a style that is closer to a Brunello than Chianti. This 2011 (a very good vintage) is starting to drink beautifully now and will continue to improve with further bottle age. Classic dried red fruits of cranberries and cherries are interwoven with delicious oak spices and a warm, stony minerality. At our blow-out price, this is one seriously great buy!

We are in Westridge Court, at the intersection of Rt. 59 and Aurora Avenue. Our center is on the east side of Rt. 59 on the part of the center that faces Aurora Avenue.

Our store is on Old Skokie Road which is the frontage road on the west side of Rt. 41. We are 400 yards south of Deerfield Rd/Central Avenue. If you know where Williams Ski & Patio or Rick's Auto Body are located, we're on the same street; just about a few hundred yards to the south. If you are not familiar with the area, best to use GPS or some online directions because our store is a bit tricky to find!

We're on Elston Avenue, just off of the Kennedy Expressway (I-90/94). Take the North Avenue exit and head east. Elston Avenue is the first stoplight that you'll come to. Turn left on Elston and drive for just over a quarter mile. We'll be on the left side of the road just after the rail overpass. Parking is on-street, right in front of the store!
