Gran Selezione Effe 55 Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2011

Quite closed and tightly woven with great purity & depth. Dark fruit, some spice, a touch of liquorice. Excellent tannin management and a long finish. . A very, very fine wine.
100% Sangiovese aged 18m in tonneaux and botte.

La Piana

Cristino Aleatico 2016

Delectable Wine
9.4

Luminous red. Aromas of wild strawberry, red cherry, cinnamon, vineyard peach, and pink flowers. A sweet explosion of floral red fruits and sweet spices follows through in the rich, suave mouth, firmed by a suggestion of orchard fruit pit. Penetrating and perfumed on the very sweet (240g/L r.s.) and very long finish. Remarkably well balanced (the extremely high but harmonious 9.8g/L total acidity allows this super-sweet to convey a very light on its feet quality), this wine from the beautiful but little-known island of Capraia off the Tuscan coast is an absolute knockout. Made from organically farmed grapes air-dried for 14 days. Will work equally well with a plum crumble or a chocolate cake. (Ian D'Agata, Vinous, October 2017) — 2 years ago
