Sipping Fine Wine

Just had another bottle of this beauty, a Gran Selezione, new premium level approved in 2014, min 80% Sangiovese, must all be estate grown, min 13% alcohol & min 30 months aging. A blend of 95% Sangiovese & 5% Merlot, aged in French oak. Deep Ruby with aromas of ripe berry fruits and gentle spice notes. On the palate flavors of black cherry & ripe blackberry fruit with cacao & baking spices, good balance with lively acidity. Fine structured tannins, long finish ending with a fruit & mineral character. Nice!

Single vineyard 2013 Gran Selezione is 95% Sangiovese / 5% Merlot. Dark cherry, spice, a little earthiness and chocolate on the palate. Full bodied, concentrated and smooth. Decanted for 3 hours, which helped to loosen up the firm tannins and give it a nicely balanced finish. Affordable Gran Selezione at $34.
