    Chianti Classico "Vigna San Marcellino" Gran Selezione DOCG 2015 (BIO)

    Sparkling ruby red. Complex and enveloping bouquet of rich cherry, black forest berries, violet and tobacco. The single vineyard Chianti Classico San Marcellino is superbly structured, interwoven with lively, elegant tannins, of exemplary harmony and a hearty, slightly salty finish. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Sparkling ruby with a slight violet tint. Rich nose with notes of ripe blackberries and dark cherries, in the background slightly tarry. Juicy and present at the base and flow, very well integrated tannin, with an appealing sweet enamel, firm pressure." Falstaff

    "Deep, lustrous ruby. Complex and pure on the nose with delicately handled oak management having just added a tiny hint of the barriques. Juicy cherry and raspberry fruit with finely grained long tannins. Fantastic focus and length and with lots of juice on the finish. Its elegance belies the 15% this actually has. Still a little closed, so I would cellar this for another two years. There is no great hurry." Jancis Robinson

    "A balanced, refined red with plum, cherry and chocolate character, as well as walnut. It’s medium-bodied with juicy fruit and a savory finish. Complex and pretty." James Suckling

    "A broad, dense red, with ripe plum, black cherry and blackberry flavors, framed by vibrant acidity and burly tannins. Earth, sanguine and tobacco accents chime in. All the components are proportioned correctly, but this will take some time to integrate fully. Fine length and freshness. Best from 2022." Wine Spectator

    "A selection made from the San Marcellino vineyard which includes a plot of 50-year-old vines. The soil here is extremely rocky, composed mainly of alberese - a hard marl rich in calcium carbonate which tends to give deeply coloured wines. There is a lot to love in this wine. Enticing red and black currants are demurely nuanced with toast and spice. Ample and mouth filling without being heavy, the palate is abundantly layered with velvety textured tannins. Purity of fruit is preserved throughout and this finishes with mouth-watering salinity." Decanter

    "The 2015 Chianti Classico Vigneto San Marcellino is fabulous. Sweet red cherry, red plum, mint, sweet pipe tobacco, cedar, licorice, blood orange and dried herbs all race out of the glass. The Sangiovese is so expressive. Even so, the 2015 is a wine of reserve. I would cellar it for at least a few years, as it has clearly entered a period of post-bottling closure. Its energy and vibrancy are notable." Vinous
