Winemaker's Notes:

Deep black plum, ripe blackberry and rose petal aromas fill the nose of this wine. The mouth shows abundant fresh fruit, with loads of red cherry, blackberry and plummy flavors, hints of mocha, and smooth, firm tannins.

85% Sangiovese, 15% Merlot and Cabernet

My Notes:

About Castello di Monastero:

Over the last 15 years, Lionello Marchesi has garnered worldwide acclaim for his Tuscan wines. Marchesi's achievements in viticulture, enology and agro-tourism began in 1984 with the purchase of a medieval village in the noble Montepulciano region.
Today, Marchesi brings knowledge and anthusiasm to all of his current Tuscan properties: Castello do Monastero, Coldsole, and Poggio alle Sughere.
Castello di Monastero produces wines from the classified areas of Chianti and Chianti Classico, as well as the acclaimed Super-Tuscan offering, Infinito.
