2013 Monsanto Chianti Classico Riserva is an absolute joy to taste. Sensual and layered in the glass, the 2013 is built on a total sense of finesse. Sweet floral notes, tobacco, cedar and dried flowers give the 2013 its super-classic profile. The wine offers crisp lines and a linear style that gives prominence to aromas of crisp cherry, baking spice and toasted almond. This is a medium-bodied wine with polished tannins and a deep garnet-ruby color.
