Monsanto Il Poggio Chianti Classico Riserva 1992

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is a 90% Sangiovese and 10% Canaiolo and Colorino blend aged for 18 months in oak and another 12 months in bottle creating an intense and rich palate with great weight and extract, ripe tannins, firm acidity and a sweetness of fruit lingering in the finish.

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.
