Chianti Classico Il Poggio Gran Selezione 2015
95% Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo e Colorino
Balsamic aromas and flavors of juniper, rosemary, sage and loamy earth give way to plum, cherry and iron notes in this dry, powerful red. Burly tannins complete the package. The lasting impression is of ripe fruit, showing some heat in the balance. This screams [i]terroir[n] and needs time to find equilibrium. Drink now through 2045. 833 cases made, 200 cases imported.
From its beginning in 1962, Castello di Monsanto has always been one of Italy’s most innovative wine estates. Today, 60 years later, the estate is known as one of the crown jewels of the Chianti Classico Denomination. With the first harvest made by Fabrizio Bianchi in 1962 the Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna Il Poggio is recognized as the first Single Vineyard ever made within the area.
