Tasting Notes

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Chianti Classico Riserva reveals a profile of red berries, herbs, crushed flowers and spices. The wine possesses an attractive up-front personality and finessed tannins, but it does taper off a bit on the mid-palate. In this rain-plagued vintage Monsanto did not produce its Riserva Il Poggio, and the best fruit from that site was added to this Riserva bottling, which was aged in a variety of used French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2017." (08/08) We sold several hundred cases of the very fine 2004. Monsanto is made by Andrea Giovannini, formerly at Ornellaia.
