Castello Monastero Chi Cl 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The production area and vinification and refinement techniques ensure an impressive bouquet with hints of wild fruit. The intense bouquet, with hints of wild fruit and leather, is joined in this Chianti Classico by a dry, intense, complex and harmonious taste. It is an ideal accompaniment for cured meats, pasta and rice dishes, grilled meat and cheese.
