    The 2016 vintage is a classic, it will go down in history as one of Chianti Classico’s best. The nose of this wine has the signature Monsanto blend of earth, spice and wild cherry fruit that swirl out of the glass. On the palate the wine shows incredible balance, precision but immediately lets you know it is a powerful and structured wine. On your tongue the forest floor flavors leather, porcini and wild brush add to a savory character that is the dominant presence, followed by slowly releasing wild cherry fruit. The finish is long, I mean really long and shows what a great wine this will be.You can drink this wine now, I’d decant 2-3 hours first but Monsanto’s real power rests in its ability to age. This wine will last 20+ years without any problems and at 10 years from the vintage you will be able to get an evolved and mature wine that will lose most of its youthful sassiness. I am putting this into my cellar you should too.
