  • Chianti Monsanto Italy 2006

    Snoothrank:

    This is a balanced bottle of wine. You can easily pick that it is old world. On the nose, it is very vibrant. There are many things going on. It is very earthy. I get dried leaves, wet stones, mud, herbs, empty cigar box, some spices, and surprisingly a little hint of caramel! On the palate, it has a little (hollow). It is dry and medium bodied ...

  • Castello di Monsanto Chianti Classico Il Poggio 2006

    Snoothrank:

    The 2006 Il Poggio was Tuscany personified as aromas of animal musk, spice, wild berries and forest notes wafted up from the glass. On the palate, this wine showed wild red berries and autumnal notes with a mouth-feel of pure silk. The finish was long in sour berry and spice. Read More

  • Monsanto Chianti Classico Riserva 1980

    Snoothrank:

    The nose of this wine showed undergrowth and herbs with dusty dark fruit and a bit of old parchment paper. On the palate, I found tart yet delicate raspberry fruit, which led to a tannic anise finish that was a bit marred by acidity. Read More

  • Monsanto Chianti Classico Riserva 1977

    Snoothrank:

    The 1977 Monsanto, Il Poggio showed vibrant and fresh aromas reminding my of autumn with dried cherry, allspice and baking pie crust. On the palate, I found sweet cherry tobacco and cedar on a balanced and delicate frame. The finish was medium long with red fruit and hint of copper penny. An amazing bottle of wine. Read More
