Origin Italy, Tuscany
Brand Castello di Monsanto
Our Sangioveto Grosso is made from another of the winery's Crus, the "Scanni" vineyard. This wine is the embodiment of the revolutionary nature that has always been synonymous with the history of Castello di Monsanto. The vineyard was planted exclusively with Sangiovese vines in 1968 and produced its first harvest in 1974, in an exception to the Chianti Classico denomination rules that stated that no vineyards could be planted with a different ampelography to the historic system devised in 1800. The wine's dissenting spirit has always been emphasized by the decision to use Burgundy bottles. An IGT wine, it is mellow and silky in its younger years but has a powerful capacity to stand up to aging.

A bright, silky red, evoking pure raspberry, kirsch, floral and Tuscan scrub aromas and flavors. Elegant overall, with fine balance and a firm backbone of tannins. Excellent length. Drink now through 2027.

The 2018 Sangioveto Grosso Fabrizio Bianchi is a bold, punchy wine. Dark cherry, leather, incense, sage and dried herbs give this boisterous Sangioveto plenty of character. The 2018 is a bit unruly and rough around the edges, but that only adds to its considerable appeal.
