Vignamaggio 2007 Chianti Classico Riserva, Castello di Monna Lisa
Next tirne you glance at Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, don't focus on the half smiling face, but notice instead the delicately painted landscape of hills, vineyards, castles, and cypress trees in the background. That's almost exactly the view you get when you relax on the terrace at Vignamaggio, a 400-acre wine estate in Chianti. There's no reason to be surprised: Leonardo grew up just a few miles from here. Not only that, but Mona Lisa was born in Vignamaggio, which her family, the rich Gherardinis, called home-starting in the 14th century. "Vignarnaggio was a fairly well-known winery about 500 years ago", says corporate lawyer Gianni Nunziante, who bought the 85-room Renaissance building and surrounding hills in early 1988 and now is turning out excellent Chianti and other Tuscan wines. This wine is a blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 18-20 months in French oak barriques and later for at least 3 months in the bottle. The Wine Advocate scored it 92 points saying “The 2007 Chianti Classico Riserva Castello di Monna Lisa is one of the more distinctive Chiantis in this vintage. Made in a super-ripe, opulent style, the Monna Lisa reveals superb textural richness buttressed by fine, silky tannins on a medium-bodied, elegant frame. The wine remains exquisitely youthful, with little in the way of tertiary development. Readers who prefer a more overt, fruit-driven style of Chianti will love the Monna Lisa. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.”
