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
