Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG

    • Description :

      The heart of Tuscany is Chianti Classico and its soul is Sangiovese. When the Tolaini team of enologists discovered that the spectacular clay and galestro soil, slope and exposition of Tolaini Montebello vineyard number 7 produced impeccable Sangiovese: pure in spirit, and transcendent in quality, their mandate became clear: to create a single vineyard 100% Sangiovese, Chianti Classico Riserva. The splendid 2008 harvest was the first vintage of the Tolaini Chianti Classico Riserva and with the 2010 vintage the Riserva was replaced with the Tolaini Chianti Classico Gran Selezione. Produced solely in the best vintages, Gran Selezione is a single vineyard wine; the 100% Sangiovese estate fruit is born in Tolaini's organically farmed Montebello Vineyard "numero sette".

      Tasting notes :

      This is a sensual wine with notes of cherry fruit, tobacco, leather and hints of licorice and spice. The elegant tannins balance nicely with the fruit, all underlined by a fabulous stratum of acidity, making this a complex wine with incontestable structure and power. A long and satisfying finish confirms this Sangiovese is true to its terroir.
