Castello di Monastero Chianti Superiore 2008

External Review by NapaCabs.com:

Made from 85% Sangiovese grapes with 15% Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, and is refined for seven months in small oak barrels. This Chianti Superiore is an all-meal wine: its dry bouquet has hints of vanilla, with a persistent and harmonious taste.
