This is one of the icon wines of the greater Chianti Classico area. The hot vintage Castello di Monsanto 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva shows width and depth with plenty of dark fruit, cherry, blackberry and plum. The wine is steady and bright with polished tannins and a mid-weight approach that proves its overall versatility and adaptability. It is ideal for a plate of ricotta-filled gnudi.
Drink Date: 2021 - 2028
