Castello di Monsanto

The 2006 Chianti Classico Riserva Il Poggio is a powerhouse. Firm sturdy tannins enshroud a core of fruit that struggles to emerge in the glass. Behind the wine’s imposing structure lie hints of red cherries, menthol, licorice and leather. Today the 2006 Il Poggio comes across as painfully young, but the balance, length and impeccable finish suggest all that is required is patience. Over the years and decades Il Poggio has built a stellar track record of excellence. Il Poggio is 90% Sangiovese, 7% Canaiolo and 3% Colorino. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2036. ||Castello di Monsanto is one of the historic names in Chianti Classico. The flagship Chianti Classico Riserva Il Poggio and Nemo (Cabernet Sauvignon) are both exceptional in 2006 and promise to deliver much pleasure over many, many years. Wine Advocate.October, 2010
