Intro: The Monsanto winery is owned by the Bianchi family. Father, Fabrizio and daughter, Laura manage the Winery today.
Castello di Monsanto owns some of the best vineyard sites within the appellation and is home to the largest reserves of Chianti Classico in Tuscany. In 1962, Fabrizio Bianchi founded the winery. That same year, pioneering Monsanto was the first winery to make a Chianti Classico Cru from the single ‘Il Poggio’ vineyard and worked to eliminate white grapes from Chianti Classico Riserva blend. Further, in 1981 Monsanto harvested the first 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, Nemo, from the Il Mulino vineyard.


Description: Right since 1962, the property of Castello di Monsanto is about 25 hectares of vineyards, adjacent to the rest of the lands, which are found within the area of the Chianti Colli Senesi production. Here is where the youngest and freshest wine of the company is produced : the Monrosso. Estate grown blend of 80% Sangiovese, 10% Canaiolo, 10% Merlot.

Vinification: Vinified in steel with 12-15 days of maceration, it ages in Slavonia oak barrels for 12 months before sale.

Flavours: Soft and elegant, with flavors of red berry fruit and a pleasant acidity, leading to a lingering finish.

Food Pairings: Enjoy with antipasto, grilled meats, burgers, pizzas, paninis and other Italian specialties.
