Chianti Classico DOCG Gran Selezione
Gran Selezione is a new wine that tops the quality pyramid of its label. The grapes of this wine are cultivated only in selected vineyards capable of drawing the best of a vast and varied land, a new reference point in the international wine market.
The color is ruby red with an austere bouquet full of aromas ranging from small berries to ripe red fruit, with balsamic nuances and a spicy note. On the palate it is full and juicy with smooth and well-integrated tannins, clean hints of red fruit, spices and underbrush that accompany the long finish and bear witness to the depth of this newborn wine in the Gran Selezione category.
