Bright crimson in colour, this wine is very expressive with notes of red fruits and minerals that leap from the glass. Plenty of fruit on the palate, a touch of complexity and sweet tannins. Pairs well with grilled meats, cabrito and lamb.
Castello di Monsanto
Born in 1980 from a challenge of Fabrizio Bianchi to create a white wine of great character in an area which was not especially dedicated to it, this selection of Chardonnay from the Valdigallo vineyard, 3.50 hectares at an altitude of 260 metre a.s.l. exposed to the north-east, is vinified half in 5 hl French barrels and the other half in steel. It ages over two years in glass before the sale. Its great capacity to age makes it possible to enjoy its characteristics to the best after many years from the harvest.
It is quick to express itself on the palate with harmonious flavors of cassis, blackberry, cigar box, dark chocolate and vanilla spice. Length, and finesse on the palate, a finely balanced wine of substance with firm structure and silky tannins. We dare you to blind taste this wine with Napa Cabernets at twice the price and then you will see for yourself our concept of ‘worth and value’. Michael David Striking aromas of ripe dark fruits radiate from the glass in an earthy, smoky tobacco context. Full, rich fruit flavors of dark berries, whole plum and blackcurrant fill the palate and hold their flavors through a long and smooth peppery finish.
