Castello di Monsanto Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2014

$23.99

The 2014 Chianti Classico Riserva is another stellar wine from Monsanto. Here the flavors are dark and deeply spiced, with plenty of black cherry, plum, leather, cinnamon and clove overtones. The 2014 Riserva boasts considerable depth while retaining the classic Monsanto midweight sense of structure... Even at this early stage, the 2014 is a wine of real character and personality.

Nice Chianti Classico. Medium bodied, good structure at 6 years, layers of red fruit. Good acidity.

Lovely though a bit rusty at first but opens up nicely after decanting

Brimming with black cherry and plum fruit, leather, followed by cooling flavors of juniper, clove, and arid underbrush. Love the spine this has, classy with chalky tannin. Digging it!

The color is surprisingly advanced with a good deal of brick/garnet in the rim.. Otherwise the color is medium Ruby and on the nose there is leather, cherry, anise and a bit of dried red flower petals. Medium high acidity, well balanced tannins and good length on the finish. Elegant more than powerful and already drinking well

This is quite a bit darker than previous vintages. Palate is right on though. Firm tannin, rustic through and through with barnyard, roasted meat, smoke, and charcoal. Elegance body, layered, nuanced and contemplative. A consistently great wine vintage to vintage.

Tasting pour at Pre-Falltacular dinner in the OC. Took some time to unwind, but excellent on revisit at the end of the evening.
