2008 Monsanto Chianti Classico Riserva


Wine Advocate 92 Points

The 2008 Chianti Classico Riserva is a very pretty, centered wine. Dark cherries, plums, spices, menthol, cedar, game and tobacco are some of the notes that emerge from the glass. The 2008 is an understated Riserva that impresses for its length, focus and balance. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.-AG

James Suckling 92 Points

Chewy and structured, with a firm tannins and racy acidity. Full body, with lots of plummy and blackberry fruit. Need about three years to soften. Best in 2013.
