Castello di Monsanto on Snooth

  • Hi allJust signed up and looking forward to learning about wines. I favour red over white but like both. So far my favs tend to be Italian chianti but I do really the Californian Beringer cabernets. I unfortunately cannot afford to spend a big lot on purchases and tend to stick to those priced from $20 to $30 Canadian. Although Canadian, I haven... Read More

  • Rossi Castello di Monsanto Chianti Classico 2008

    Snoothrank:

    D/H 2013-2023-The 2008 Chianti Classico Riserva is a very pretty, centered wine. Dark cherries, plums, spices, menthol, cedar, game and tobacco are some of the notes that emerge from the glass. The 2008 is an understated Riserva that impresses for its length, focus and balance. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.Score: 92. Antonio Galloni, August 2... Read More

  • Rossi Castello di Monsanto Chianti Classico 2008

    Snoothrank:

    The nose was restrained and youthful showing cool red berry fruits, plum, woodsy notes and dusty spice. On the palate, I found tart red fruits and inner floral notes with a lean, medium body. Forget this bottle in the cellar for many years, and it should reward patience; otherwise decant and be prepared to wait. Read More

  • Rossi Castello di Monsanto Chianti Classico 2008

    Snoothrank:

    The wine itself has a lovely deep ruby color in the glass and presents a nose of leather, licorice and some floral notes that almost feel chewy as you breath them in. The taste is somewhat fruit forward, with flavors or ripe plum and tart cherry at the front end, transitioning to some wonderful earthy, spicy notes midpalate. The well structure... Read More

  • Rossi Castello di Monsanto Chianti Classico 2008

    Snoothrank:

    91 Points: Starts off with roasted (not stewed) black cherry, a coffee undertone, and savory dried herbs. On the palate there is dried black cherry, a little powdered cocoa on the mid palate, moderate acidity, and fine tannins. Finishes very nicely with a pleasant grip, lingering dried herbs,tobacco, and that subtle dusty cocoa note, all support... Read More

  • Rossi Castello di Monsanto Chianti Classico 2008

    Snoothrank:

    The nose showed ripe crushed raspberries with leather and hint of roasted nuts. On the palate it had a medium body but with acidity to spare which counter the red berry fruit and shortened it's length. Herbs and red berries lingered through the finish with hints of tannin. I doubt this wine improve much with time, but at this price, it's worth p... Read More

  • Monsanto Chianti Classico Riserva 2007

    Snoothrank:

    The nose showed black cherries, mint, floral, a hint of barnyard and that lovely dusty note that Sangiovese sometimes shows. On the palate, it flowed effortlessly with juicy, ripe red fruits, some tobacco and cedar. The finish was long and fresh with just a hint of structure showing through. This is yet another great value wine from Monsanto. I ... Read More

  • Castello di Monsanto Cabernet Sauvignon Toscana IGT Nemo 2003

    Snoothrank:

    The nose was deep and engaging with rich black cherry sauce, balanced by floral notes, cedar, earth and floral undergrowth. On the palate, it was enveloping as a mix of raspberry and blueberry with baking spices, cedar and minerals engaged the sense and traversed a fine line between rich and juicy. The finish was long with cinnamon spice and bit... Read More
