Fabrizio Bianchi sangioveto GROSSO bottle

Fabrizio Bianchi Sangioveto Grosso IGT Toscana

Our Sangioveto Grosso is made from another of our crus, the “Scanni” vineyard. This wine is the embodiment of the revolutionary nature that has always been synonymous with the history of Castello di Monsanto. The vineyard was planted exclusively with Sangiovese vines in 1968 and produced its first harvest in 1974, in an exception to the Chianti Classico denomination rules that stated that no vineyards could be planted with a different ampelography to the historic system devised in 1800. The wine’s dissenting spirit has always been underlined by the decision to use Borgognotta bottles. An IGT wine, it is mellow and silky in its younger years but has a powerful capacity to stand up to aging.
