Good not great, balanced, good fruit, not much complexity, usually a fav but it lacked that spark, drank with pizza at Arturo's , will drink other vintages again.

Fantastic! In its prime drinking window. Gobs of fruit, hint of herbs and earth, and smooth tannins all in great balance. Drinks well above its price.

Had at dinner and didn't take any proper notes.

The wine has a medium intensity ruby color.

The nose is very Italian and, in my book, typical Chianti with sour, dark cherries, fresh basil and sage and some dusty gravel. Not complex but enjoyable.

On the palate the wine is dry with a medium acidity, medium body and medium(-) tannin. It is refreshing and easy-drinking and paired very well with our Pici al Ragu. Surprisingly young for it's age and will definitely hold it together for another 1 or 2 years.

Very good QPR at 7€ (69SEK)!

2004 Castello di Monsanto Chianti Classico Riserva Il Poggio

Chianti Classico DOCG Sangiovese Blend, Sangiovese more

On the nose, beautiful camphor, bandaid, and strawberry. On the palate, black cherry, earth, strawberry, and hints of black pepper and leather, with strong acidity and a medium to long finish. This is very good on its own, but it really shines as an accompaniment to food -- a rich, salty pasta sets it off perfectly. It's excellent, but with the price creeping up over $50 I question whether it's worth the extra cost over the regular Riserva. I would call it a good value at about two-thirds of that.

A fruitforward jammy version, with a nice underlying telltale monsanto character in its fruit and spice profile, but ultimately this shows the signs of the vintage. Voluptous fruit and not enough structure giving a fatiguing mouthfeel. The fruit is overripe, candied, and the finish is fairly brief. I am not indulging further in this vintage and prefer to stock up on other recent vintages

These has evolved well since having last 2 years ago, and showing why it's much different with a little age. The fruit was a little subdued, but reached the surface more and more after a few hours. A really nice nose and flavors of mushroom, earth, cherries. I'd suggest to drink now and over the next 3 years.

Bright orange red, menthol, stewed plums nose. Smooth, long, integrated tannins, nice acidity on finish. Attractive, bright and fresh. Excellent, good potential for future.

Concentrated colour of deep red/purple. Ripe red fruits on a concentrated aromatic nose with mushroom, pine forest spice, and light pipe tobacco smoke. Dry on the palate with exquisite balance of acid and integrated tannins. Flavours of raspberry, cherry, and earth that linger for a nice finish that is smoky and with subtle spice. Very nice wine, and drinking wonderfully!

Light ruby red in color. Takes a long time for the aromas to come together-, red cherry, currants, strong underbrush and new saddle leather make up a rather classic Chianti nose. Light to medium bodied with tell-tale underbrush notes framing bright red crushed cherry fruit, good acidity and a soft, round and soil inflected finish. True to its terroir and a whale of a bargain for $17.

5/10/2015 - Decanthor Likes this wine: 89 points

Been a while since I drink one of these, and IMO, it has not improved. On the contrary, it had some green notes on open that were off. I decanted for close to an hour and it improved. While there is more complexity with soft spices and minerals (and paired well with our pesto-based meal), the fruit seems to be more subdued than when it was young. Still a very good wine, med-full body, good acidity for food. In fact, it needs food.

I hope it is in an awkward stage, as I miss the excellent fruit from my first bottle years ago. I will wait a while before the next one and make sure I decant for the full hour.

Color: ruby / brick. Nose: earthy / loam, autumn leaves, and just a hint of sweetness. Mouth: surprisingly rich and mouth-filling, excellent length; soft tannins that are softly assertive ; very nice acidity. Showing its maturity but I don't think it has quite peaked yet.

Have had this wine yearly since its initial release [honeymooned at Monsanto that year, we drink on our anniversary] and this is the wine's best showing yet.
