Castello Monsanto
This wine is born from a selection of grapes coming from the vineyards which are considered to be the most suitable for ageing in large 50hl barrels. Composed of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Canaiolo and Colorino, it is vinified in steel for about 18 days. The maturing lasts 12 months in 50 hl barrels of Slavonia oak. Finally, it spends the last three-month period of ageing in glass.
Ruby dazzling.
Doth hints of fruits like cherry, strawberry, blueberry, chased by humus and geranium, enhanced by herbs.
In the mouth it is fresh and tasty, satisfies the equilibrium and persistence reached 15 months in barrels.
