Chianti Classico Riserva di Monna Lisa 2010 Gran Selezione, Vignamaggio
The estate where this wine is made was actually a home to the famous model for a time. The wine is a masterpiece of it's own, granted the new and prestigious Gran Selezione designation, the grapes are careful selection, sourced from old vine vineyards on the estate in Greve. Antonio Galloni scored this 93 points saying "Vignamaggio has done a fabulous job with their 2010 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Riserva di Monna Lisa, a wine that captures the pedigree of this great Tuscan vintage. Rich and beautifully layered, yet light on its feet, the 2010 captivates all the senses with its striking perfume, gorgeous fruit and impeccable tannins. Dark red cherries, licorice, savory herbs, cloves and new leather resonate on the warm, expressive finish. The addition of 10% each Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon has given the Monna Lisa additional depth and complexity, but it is still the Sangiovese that is front and center."
