Winemaker Notes

Deep ruby red in color, Monna Lisa offers tons of density and structure, yet remains elegant with aromas of dark berries, tobacco and savory herbs.

Enjoy with hearty meat dishes, stews and roasts.

Critical Acclaim

JS 93
James Suckling
Enticing aromas of dried lavender, spearmint and blackberries follow through to a full body, ultra-fine tannins and a beautiful, delicious finish. This is a red with beautiful composure and integration. Seamless texture.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
A blend of 80% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, this opens with aromas that recall mature plum, violet, oak and a whiff of exotic spice. The structured palate offers dried black cherry, star anise and a whiff of grilled herb alongside firm, refined tannins that give the finish grip.

One of the first wine regions anywhere to be officially recognized and delimited, Chianti Classico is today what was originally defined simply as Chianti. Already identified by the early 18th century as a superior zone, the official name of Chianti was proclaimed upon the area surrounding the townships of Castellina, Radda and Gaiole, just north of Siena, by Cosimo III, Grand Duke of Tuscany in an official decree in 1716.

However, by the 1930s the Italian government had appended this historic zone with additonal land in order to capitalize on the Chianti name. It wasn’t until 1996 that Chianti Classico became autonomous once again when the government granted a separate DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita) to its borders. Ever since, Chianti Classico considers itself no longer a subzone of Chianti.

Many Classicos are today made of 100% Sangiovese but can include up to 20% of other approved varieties grown within the Classico borders. The best Classicos will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and be full-bodied with plenty of ripe fruit (plums, black cherry, blackberry). Also common among the best Classicos are expressive notes of cedar, dried herbs, fennel, balsamic or tobacco.
