Wine tasting note: 1999 Monsanto, Castello di Monsanto Chianti Classico DOCG

1999 Monsanto, Castello di Monsanto Chianti Classico DOCG

5th May 2001 Chianti Table Red

Fairly deep, bright red paling at rim.
Closed on the nose but some sour tomato aromas - not unpleasant.
Old fashioned Chianti - juicy cherry fruit with hard, bitter tannins and sour acidity.
Needs food, needs time.
Not bad but not very exciting either.
