Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “Here is a release that recalls the glories of the ripe and sumptuous 2015 release – even to this date we still have many clients asking for the wine today. For IWM, it is not just the 2017 Tignanello or even 2017 Solaia that should be watched, it is this Chianti Classico Gran Selezione that demands attention, as few wines have improved so greatly over the past few years and are delivered at this price point. Like the 2017 Tignanello and Solaia, as well as, Guado al Tasso for that matter, the vintage allows for approachability and this is serious, silky crowd-pleaser, jaw-droppingly delicious right out of the bottle with four years of age. Ripe black cherries, even macerated cherries, plum and once you get past the generous fruit, you begin to experience wild herbs, cedar, earth and stony minerality. Stunningly elegant and inviting with its almost creamy texture, but there is balance with freshness and acidity. It has plenty of years ahead of it but hard to resist today. This is a MUST stop on the Chianti trail with dinner at Osteria di Passignano - right there in the historic vineyards. Simply magical – that goes for the wine, vineyard and restaurant.” more info
