Monsanto Chianti Classico Riserva 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

#31 of Wine Spectator Top 100 2012 "A powerful and opulent style, this red displays ripe cherry, black currant, violet and tobacco aromas and flavors. The tannins are gripping on the finish, which lingers with sweet fruit and mineral accents. Well-proportioned. Best from 2014 through 2021...92" WS 10/12 "Striking. Succulent dark cherries, flowers, mint and licorice burst from the glass in this exuberant, sexy Riserva. The tannins are nearly buried by the opulent fruit, but the wine retains great balance, while avoiding any sense of heaviness. The 2009 captures the heat and richness of the year while never abandoning its classic sense of structure. This is a superb wine from Monsanto with plenty of upside potential. Sweet floral notes add an elegant, feminine touch to the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021...93" WA 6/12

An outstanding Chianti, possessing aromas of clove, cherry and cedar. Soft, ripe tannins support sweet cherry and spice flavors. Long, slightly dry finish. Very drinkable in May 2013. An hour of decanting does a lot for this wine. At around $18 per bottle, this is a steal. Grade of A for quality, A for value.
