Tasting notes
Very dark ruby with purple reflections. Multifaceted aromas. Expressive, intense notes of black, ripe cherries, also plums, fresh blossom, cloves and dark chocolate. Dense on the palate with plenty of mellowness and finely woven tannins. The aromas on the nose are joined by a little tobacco and cedar. Clear, straightforward and precise. Long, lingering, juicy-elegant finish.

Details
This is how a Gran Selezione should be: elegant and precise with aromas of ripe red fruits, dense on the palate with plenty of mellowness and – typical of this terroir – tangible tannins.
Recommendations
Fine pasta dishes pair particularly well with this Riserva.
Vinification
Only the best grapes from the Badia a Passignano vineyard is used for this wonderful Chianti. After picking, the grapes are gently pressed and immediately fermented in 50hl wooden and stainless steel tanks Maturation and refinement takes place over approximately 14 months in new or one- to two-year-old French and Hungarian barriques, followed by a further twelve months of bottle ageing. Only around 75,000 bottles are produced each year!
