I've had previous vintages of Monsanto Riserva, but I don't think this one matches those. To me the wine does not show the fruity brightness or the tart refreshness that I seek. It's not a bad wine. but I'll pass on future bottles and, maybe, try again when another vintage is available.

The 2010 Chianti Classico Riserva sees more contact with barrel (neutral tonneaux and barrique) but you can hardly tell. This stunning expression exudes femininity and elegance. Wild berries, tar, licorice and balsam herbs emerge softly from the bouquet. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022. Cherry, raspberry, leather and spice flavors highlight this rich, succulent red, which is firm, yet balanced and integrated, with a long, cherry- and spice-tinged finish. Best from 2015 through 2025. 30,000 cases made. -BS

This is very aromatic with dried flowers and black cherries. Full body with very fresh acidity and beautiful fruit. This is long and racy. So delicious now with a mineral undertone and a clean finish. Drink or hold. James Suckling.

Readers should do whatever they can to get their hands on Monsanto s 2010 Chianti Classico Riserva a wine that captures the full pedigree of this great Tuscan vintage and at a reasonable price. Brisk saline notes form the backbone as this expressive nuanced Riserva shows off its focus delineation and pure clarity. One of the best wines of the year in its price range the 2010 is all class. Juicy dark berries flowers tobacco and spices add complexity over time but it is the wine s overal

The 2010 Chianti Classico Riserva sees more contact with barrel (neutral tonneaux and barrique) but you can hardly tell. This stunning expression exudes femininity and elegance. Wild berries, tar, licorice and balsam herbs emerge softly from the bouquet. Anticipated maturity: 2014–2022.


Winemaker's Notes:

The Chianti Classico Riserve comes from a selection of grapes from vineyards which are more suitable for long maturing. Vinified in steel with a maceration of about 20 days, and as a second passage, it is aged in smaller wooden barrels for about 18 months, to then rest for a minimum of 3 months in glass.
