Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Succulent red and blue fruit dance with smoke, cigar wrapper, warm saddle leather and spice in this seamless ’10 Chianti Classico that does justice to the new Gran Selezione designation. This wine unspools on the palate to show a brocade-like texture, terrific complexity, and breathtaking balance, all culminating in a lingering finish that’s bright with acidity and velvety with tannins. Produced from the best grapes grown on the property, this wine ferments for eight days in temperature-controlled stainless steel, followed by twelve more days of skin contact; after, the wine performs its malolactic fermentation in oak barrels, then ages in barrels for fourteen months before being bottled, where it ages for sixteen months. A bold, delicious wine that explodes with pure Sangiovese fruit, this ’10 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione is a delight to drink right now, but it’ll be even more delicious years down the road.
