2012 Castello di Monsanto Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG

$53.00

Tuscany, Italy

Fragrant and elegantly structured sangiovese and 10% canaiolo and colorino open with lovely aromas of pressed violet, iris, berry, and baking spice. On the palate, notes of white pepper, toast, espresso, and anise accent the black cherry core. Polished tannins give it a firm finish. Drink 2016–2022.
