"Aromas of plums, cherries and hints of green olives. White truffles and deep earth, too. Full-bodied, so layered and beautiful with a fabulous texture and ripe tannins. It is so pure and minimalist in the end, showing the effect of traditional, hands-off winemaking. Don’t miss this. Decant before serving. One for the cellar. Drink or hold."

Wine Spectator 95
" Designation Smart Buys. Tight and tannic for now, featuring cherry, black currant, leather, iron, juniper and tar flavors. Firmly structured, meaty and balanced on the tannic side, with a lingering finish. Best from 2021 through 2035. 26,000 cases made. "

Castello di Monsanto

View all from Castello di Monsanto
In 1961 Fabrizio Bianchi, a successful textile manufacturer from Milan, purchased Castello di Monsanto and, in so doing, realized a long-held dream. Captivated by the beauty of Tuscany and convinced of the property's winemaking potential, Bianchi undertook the complete restoration of the vineyards and winery, while his wife, Giuliana, oversaw the restoration of the villa. Bianchi has relentlessly pursued the highest standards of quality, with particular emphasis on grape selection, natural vinification and a judicious use of technology.

A great wine at this price point

"Maybe not a 95, but if not, it's close. We bought a case. If you like Chianti, buy this."

Louis

If you like Chiantis (and we do!) you should like this.

"Hey, Chiantis seem passe' for some folks, but I've never understood wanting the trendiest wine. I want the tastiest. This is a solid choice at a good price if you are a lover of wines from this region."

Tom

Easy to drink with good flavor
