Castello di Monsanto has been established for more than half a century and became one of the most renowned wineries in the world. It is part of the Bianchi family's development which ensured the consistency of the Monsanto style in the wines.The 2015 vintage is born from a selection of grapes coming from the vineyards which are considered to be the most suitable for ageing in large 50hl barrels. Composed of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Canaiolo and Colorino, it is vinified in steel for about 18 days. The maturing lasts 12 months in 50 hl barrels of Slavonia oak. Finally, it spends the last three-month period of ageing in glass.
