The winter of 1995 was mild. The weather during the growing season was warm and dry. The rain, which fell in August and the first 2 days of September, was welcome and helped with maturation. At the time of the harvest, on October 10th, the grapes were very healthy.
At Monsanto 1995 is considered a very “classic” vintage in which the elegance of Sangiovese predominates rather than its power.
