Castello di Monsanto Vin Santo la Chimera 1993
The Monsanto Vin Santo is a blend of equal parts Trebbiano and Malvasia that spent eight years in small 55 and 110-liter barrels. It is delicate, understated Vin Santo. Medium in body, its balance seems to favor aromatics and length on the palate rather than an expression of fruit, sweetness or concentration.
Castello di Monsanto is one of the most respected estates in Tuscany and one of the top producers of traditional Chianti Classico Riserva. Located midway between Florence & Siena, the estate lies on the westernmost edge of the Chianti Classico zone, one of the best areas for Chianti. The estate itself is a landmark, with its distinctive hilltop castle.
