Vinification:
A modern wine estate with outstanding ratings since 1962. Monsanto produces the highly ragarded single-vinyard wine and available from 1964 only in the best vintages. This wine is born from a selection of grapes coming from the vineyards which are considered to be the most suitable for ageing in large 50hl barrels. It is vinified in steel for about 18 days. The maturing lasts 12 months in oak barrels. Finally, it spends the last three-month period of ageing in bottle.

Tasting Notes:
12 months in Slavonia oak barrels; a flavor of cherries and figs with herbal aromas

Other Reviews:
Here's a wine that will appeal to those who love Sangiovese and authentic Tuscan tastes. The 2013 Chianti Classico pushes all the right sensorial buttons. The wine is compact in the mouth for easy drinking. It offers more length and persistency. 89 points - Monica Larner
