  • Monsanto Il Poggio Chianti Classico Riserva 1999

    Snoothrank:

    A perfect example of a Sangiovese entering maturity. The color was red heading toward burnt orange. On the nose is a bouquet of dried flowers and potpourri, with undergrowth and tar, but all the while showing plum fruit and caramel. Take a sip and you find raspberry fruit, flower petals, rosemary and a hint of aged oak. The palate was silky sm... Read More

  • Monsanto Il Poggio Chianti Classico Riserva 1999

    Snoothrank:

    Aromas of cherry, dried flowers, red licorice, cedar and sage rise from the glass to form a gorgeous, rich and interesting nose. The palate comes across as more advanced than expected but amazing none the less with strawberry, herbal tea with honey, minerals and bacon fat. The finish is long with sour cherry fruit and still shows a generous amou... Read More
