Grand Cru of Chianti Classico & Beyond from Castello di Monsanto

9th February 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Grand Cru of Chianti Classico & Beyond from Castello di Monsanto

With over half a century of history, Castello di Monsanto has long been an influential producer, becoming one of the best-known wineries in Chianti Classico.

The Chianti Classico Il Poggio is unquestionably one of Tuscany’s top wines. Its site should be a prime candidate for the Tuscan equivalent of Grand Cru, should any classification ever be made
– Nicolas Belfrage MW The Finest Wines of Tuscany and Central Italy

No estate in Chianti Classico has provided me with more great memories of that region’s wines than Castello di Monsanto… This wines is what great Chianti is all about.
– Robert Parker Jr, 1989

Castello di Monsanto is widely considered one of the top dozen Chianti Classico estates of today, especially if its top wine, the Chianti Classico Riserva Il Poggio, is mentioned.
– Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Join us for a live-streamed tour led by Laura Bianchi, Owner of Castello di Monsanto, and face-to-face tasting workshop moderated by Justin Chen, VIA Italian Wine Ambassador. Two great vintages of their legendary Il Poggio, the first cru of Chianti Classico produced since 1962, will be offered for comparison tasting. This is a truly special tasting experience and a must for Italian wine lovers.
