Chianti Gran Selezione

Casa Emma

Gran Selezione Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2016

The precision and pencil lead generated a Bordeaux vibe-driven Sangiovese that was so long and perfectly tart I was tasting this half hour after the last drop. Majestic sour cherries in one of the nicest CC-GSs I’ve ever had. Needed 45 min decant. Props to @Jay Kline on this one: “Bravissimo” indeed! — 17 days ago

Castello di Ama

Gran Selezione San Lorenzo Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2017

Too young but still very nice with a 5h decant - suggest checking back in another 3-5 years. Tannins are very present, but the fruit and earth are very nice. Good acid too, especially for a hot vintage. — 13 days ago

Marchesi Antinori

Badia A Passignano Gran Selezione Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2017

Deep Ruby color with aromas of red/black fruits, floral and smoky oak. On the palate flavors of blackberry, cherry and plum flavors with garden herb notes, cacao, tobacco and toasty notes from 18 months of oak aging. Fine ripe tannins you can bite into, long finish ending with fruit and an earthy smoky spice character. Nice! Will age! — 2 months ago
