Monsanto Chianti Classico 2015


Sangiovese from Chianti Classico, Chianti, Tuscany, Italy

Winemaker Notes:
The Chianti Classico Riserve has a medium-full body with excellent depth of fruit, distinct spice, outstanding acidity and nicely weighted tannins.

An exceptional compliment to red meats, roasts and game.  Blend: 90% Sangiovese, 10% Canaiolo and Colorino.

Critical Acclaim:
96 Points – James Suckling
Aromas of plums, cherries and hints of green olives. White truffles and deep earth, too. Full-bodied, so layered and beautiful with a fabulous texture and ripe tannins. It is so pure and minimalist in the end, showing the effect of traditional, hands-off winemaking. Don’t miss this. Decant before serving. One for the cellar. Drink or hold.
94 Points – Wine Spectator
Tight and tannic for now, featuring cherry, black currant, leather, iron, juniper and tar flavors. Firmly structured, meaty and balanced on the tannic side, with a lingering finish.
