Sangiovese

75cl * 13% ABV * Tuscany, Italy

A seriously complex, generous style of Chianti Classico produced from San Felice's oldest vines and best plots of Sangiovese (80%), with a mix of other native varieties from their experimental vitiarium (a living museum of around 270 native Italian grape varieties - for more info click here), including Pugnitello, Abrusco and Malvasia Nera. Gran Selezione is a new classification for Chianti Classico (above Riserva), made using grapes harvested only from the winery's own vineyards. 

Ripe, opulent and with a spicy nose with complex aromas of violets, cassis, tobacco and liquorice. Full-bodied and richly flavoured - there's concentrated ripe plum and dried black fruit characters, which are enhanced by fine tannins, beautifully balanced acidity with a sour cherry twist and well-integrated spicy oak.

Drinking well now and for the next five year at least.
