  • Chianti Monsanto Italy 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Medium ruby red in the glass. The nose is very floral and full of strawberry, cedar, cream and just enough barnyard and musk to give it a traditional feel.

  • Monsanto Chianti Classico Riserva 1999

    Snoothrank:

    Drinking this wine in 2009.The nose is pretty fascinating. Red cherry notes, spice and something... brambly. Lots of tobacco.On the palate doesn't really taste ten years old. Acidity is high, but not overpowering. Flavors on the palate are a bit more low key. Lots of cherry. Hint of menthol. Read More

  • Monsanto Il Poggio Chianti Classico Riserva 1983

    A nose of spice, leather,red licorice, and glycerol..Dark color, with a deep core, tastes fresh,subtle with multi layers, and a nice, lingering finish.After 3 + hours of decanting, the wine become fuller and more spicy, and gains more subtle and multi dimensional flavors, with great length. This wine can still cellar, no problem, for a few more ... Read More

Just released, a new 2006 here, so it attacks from the entry all the way through the finish. My only concern is the slight tart finish. This wine is Q... Read More
