ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The estate’s 2006 Chianti Classico Riserva is delicious. Black cherries, herbs, tobacco and spices come together in a dark, brooding expression of Sangiovese framed by big, massive tannins. This finish is long and intense. Today the wine requires serious patience, but there is little question that it will be superb in a few years time. I can’t wait to see what Monsanto has done with its top of the line Il Poggio in this vintage. In the meantime, the 2006 Chianti Classico Riserva is a highlight; and a terrific value as well.
A blend of 90% Sangiovese, 7% Canaiolo and 3% Colorino. Made with grapes from a further selection, first in the vineyard and aferward in the winery, this Riserva consists of Sangioves (90%) and Canaiolo and Colorino (10%). It has excellent potential for aging.
