  • Chianti Monsanto Italy 2006

    Snoothrank:

Full body that carries gracefully across the palate. At first rich with cherry, then the acid kicks in with sour berries, rosemary and minerals. Juicy right down to the long red be... Read More

  • Monsanto 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

  • Castello di Monsanto Cabernet Sauvignon Toscana IGT Nemo 2003

    Snoothrank:

    100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 100% new barriqueAdult candy, thats what this smells like. Its got a nice hint of underbrush followed by ripe black currant fruits edged in pencil lead and herbs in a cool, precise register. On the palate this is rich but not unctuous with a seamless fell that carries the dense fruit effortlessly across the palate... Read More

  • Chianti Classico Ris Castello di Monsanto Castello di Monsanto Italien Toscana 2003

    Snoothrank:

    The last vintage aged exclusively in barrique, 50% of which were new, 50% second passage.The nose here is deep and gamy with sour tones, yet full of spicy backed black cherry notes. With air this gains a n herbal edge and a deep veal reduction tone that has an impression of sweetness. Rich on entry with plenty of glycerin and then rather dry ta... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    90% Sangiovese/ 10% Canaiolo and ColorinoAged in Barrique, 25% of which were new.This is intensely aromatic with a strong rosemary/balsamic note that adds a lovely counterpoint to the red currant and candied red raspberry fruit tones. There are top notes of violet pastille and a whisper of vanilla adding gentle edges to the fruit. On the palate... Read More
