Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Castello di Monsanto Chianti Classico Riserva 2019

The wine has a beautiful ruby red color with garnet hues. The intense and complex bouquet of black cherry and spice creates an immediate sense of intrigue.

On the palate, the full-bodied richness of the red berry fruit flavors are perfectly balanced with the backbone of tannin. The result is a smooth and harmonious finish that leaves a lasting impression.

To fully appreciate the depth and complexity of this Chianti Classico Riserva, it is recommended to open the bottle in advance and allow it to breathe. Decanting is also preferable to fully unlock the wine's aromas and flavors.

Critic Ratings

James Suckling Review - Rated 94:
Crushed stones with black cherries and fresh flowers. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a flavorful finish. Still so young and fruity with wonderful energy. Give it another two or three years, if you can bear to wait.

Jeb Dunnuck Review - Rated 94:
The 2019 Chianti Classico Riserva is 90% Sangiovese and the rest Canaiolo and Colorino, raised only in used barrique and large cask. It pours a pure ruby and has floral and herbal aromas of cherry candy, black raspberry, forest herbs, tomato leaf, and dried roses. It is medium to full bodied, with good concentration, fine tannins, and a long, clean finish, and it is savory with dried herbs, oregano, dried cherry, salty earth, and an angular structure.

Wine Spectator Review - Rated 91:
A sleek, tightly wound red, with black cherry and blackberry fruit shaded by iron, herbs and tobacco. Linear in profile and vibrant, with a long, slightly chewy finish. Needs a year or two. Sangiovese, Canaiolo and Colorino. Best from 2024 through 2037. 26,000 cases made, 17,000 cases imported.
