    Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2013

    The grapes for this exceptional Chianti Classico come from vines growing southwest at an altitude between 350 and 480 metres above sea level. The soil here is characterized by Galestro and limestone. Complex aromas of plum, black cherry, spices and menthol. Complex on the palate with a richness of facets and a taste profile that only gradually opens up and reveals its entire spectrum only to the patient. A parade wine of great depth, class and irresistibility. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Full, deep dark ruby, velvety shimmer. Concentrated nose, shows much dark berry fruit, to blackberry, plum, elderberry, deep, in the background to black truffle. Full and powerful in the beginning and course, a lot of dark fruit, at the same time juicy and with a good drinking flow, at the back a lot of ripe cherry, dense, polished tannin, has everything what a great Chianti Classico should have!" Falstaff

    "A red with earth, spices, dried fruits and figs on the nose, following through to a medium-bodied palate with firm tannins and a juicy finish." James Suckling

    "The cherry and berry flavors are accented by leather, tobacco, iron and earth notes in this firm, dry red. The fruit is expressive and intense, with a solid structure and a finish that goes on for minutes." Wine Spectator

    "Dark, saturated and rich, the 2013 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione delivers savory tones of spice and smoke that are folded into dark fruit, prune and dried blackberry. Despite the darkness of the bouquet, this wine shows tartness and freshness in terms of its flavor profile. There is a lot of Sangiovese typicity here, thanks to the delineated character of those wild berry aromas and the crispness of the wine's natural acidity. A mere 2,400 bottles were produced." Robert Parker

    "The 2013 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione is breathtaking. Beautifully ripe, deep and expressive, the 2013 has it all: deep fruit, stunning aromatic presence and tremendous structure. Black cherry, pomegranate, rose petal, mint and lavender all meld together in this super-expressive, resonant Chianti Classico. An absolutely killer wine, the Gran Selezione is a fabulous, contemporary expression of Chianti Classico at its very finest." Vinous
