Sipping Fine Wine

This Gran Selezione is only produced in outstanding vintages, aged for 36 months. Dark Ruby with aromas of red fruits and earthy spice on the nose. On the palate ripe cherries, plum and dark fruit come with cinnamon spice, tobacco and cacao. Well developed tight tannins, good balance, sweet oak, long finish ending with a jolt of earthy spice. A tremendous value. Outstanding, but decant first!

I think we snobs have a tendency to overlook this. A stellar round balanced Chianti. Pop n pour, awesome.

Elegant and subtle but not lacking in flavor or interest.

Single tone, quite a bit of residual sugar. Not my style.
