    Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2016

    Intense ruby grenade. Strong nose with spicy notes, some cloves and liquorice, ripe berry fruit. On the palate it is equally powerful, juicy and multi-layered, with finely drawn fruit and present, fine-grained tannin. The tension of this wine extends into the long finish. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Dark, rich ruby. In the nose of hearty cherries, plums, in the echo tomato paste. Well-balanced drink with velvety melt, beautiful flow, stretches an elegant dress, hearty to the final." Falstaff

    "Another ripe expression of Chianti Classico from this producer, this Gran Selezione shows dried nutmeg, tea leaves, eucalyptus, vanilla and blackberries. Robust, round and quite oily in style with lots of dark fruit and considerable density. Chewy and tannic on the finish." James Suckling

    "The 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione is a richly concentrated and thickly extracted wine that sits heavy on the palate with black fruit, spice, tar and tobacco. You can taste the winemaking efforts that went into making this wine with its special criteria that prizes richness and extraction. It wraps over the palate in thick, determined waves that would add power to a grilled steak and mashed potato dinner." Robert Parker
