Castello di Monsanto 1995 II Poggio Chianti Classico (Chianti Classico)

From a 13.5-acre hillside vineyard, some of this wine (20%) was aged in small French oak barrels for two full years. Mature and ready in the nose, there is abundant acidity that makes for an "awake" wine bursting with tart red-cherry flavors and mouth-coating broad tannins. Rather smooth, but just a little acidic and mildly vegetal in the midpalate. Michael Schachner
