Monsanto Chianti Classico Riserva Il Poggio 2011
- Red Wine
A mix of graphite, tea, cherry and raspberry flavors are the highlights of this elegant, firmly structured red. Dense, dusty tannins reign on the finish. On the rustic side, yet with plenty of personality. - WS
Castello di Monsanto is a wine producer based in the Chianti Classico DOCG zone. In 1962, it produced its inaugural Chianti Classico, the Riserva Il Poggio, made from a blend of predominantly Sangiovese, with small amounts of Canaiolo and Colorino. Today, the estate is managed by Fabrizio Bianchi and his daughter Laura, along with the help of winemaker Andrea Giovannini.
