The Monsanto winery is owned by the Bianchi family. Father, Fabrizio and daughter, Laura manage the Winery today. Castello di Monsanto owns some of the best vineyard sites within the appellation and is home to the largest reserves of Chianti Classico in Tuscany. In 1962, Fabrizio Bianchi founded the winery after it was presented to him as a wedding gift from his parents. That same year, pioneering Monsanto was the first winery to make a Chianti Classico Cru from the single ‘Il Poggio’ vineyard and worked to eliminate white grapes from Chianti Classico Riserva blend. Further, in 1981 Monsanto harvested the first 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, Nemo, from the Il Mulino vineyard.
The property of Castello di Monsanto is about 25 hectares of vineyards, adjacent to the rest of the lands, which are found within the area of the Chianti Colli Senesi  production. Here is where the youngest and freshest wine of the company is produced : the Monrosso. Vinified in steel with 12/15 days of maceration, it ages in Slavonia oak barrels for 12 months before sale.
93/100 Wine Spectator, August 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Heady flavours of cassis, blackberry, violet and ink mark this intense red. Powerful, yet fruity and fresh, with a peppery, minerally finish. Grill some beef for this bad boy. Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese. Best from 2018 through 2025."
87/100 Wine Advocate 87, Monica Larner, October 31, 2017 (2015 Vintage)
The 2015 Monrosso is a darkly concentrated Tuscan red with plump fruit, ripe cherry, blackberry marmalade and exotic spice. This is a rich and textured red wine that offers lots of soft and simple primary fruit on the finish. This wine is composed of 50% Syrah with equal parts Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot that together only see six months of oak aging.
