Castello di Monsanto Chianti Classico Riserva Il Poggio 2010


SKU 19326


Born in the vineyard "Il Poggio" (5.5 Ha, 310 metres a.s.l.) from which in 1962, it took its name: it is the first Chianti Classico Cru. Made of 90% Sangiovese and from 7% Canaiolo and 3% Colorino, it ages for 20 months in French oak barrels. Today it represents the most prestigious product of the company, appreciated all over the world. It is produced only in the best vintages. The company has chosen to keep a considerable quantity of bottles of this wine in the cellar being the permanent archives, able to tell the history of Castello di Monsanto. COLOR: Ruby red tending towards garnet AROMA: Rich, intense and complex with aromas of black cherry and spice. PALATE: Full bodied with rich red berry fruit flavors matched with a backbone of tannin. SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Open in advance and allowed to breathe. Decanting is preferable. An exceptional compliment to red meats, roasts and game.

Wine EnthusiastAromas of underbrush, tilled soil, toast and espresso lead the nose. The firmly structured palate offers ripe black cherry, blackberry, coffee, anise and grilled herb alongside assertive tannins that need to unwind. Drink 1016-2020.
