Characteristics of this Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG

Its appearance is ruby, elegant and luminous. The olfactory aroma and the ripe notes of red pulp fruit combine with hints of sweet spices, in an olfactory bouquet that closes with refined mentholated and balsamic tones. The taste in the mouth is soft and generous, well worked in the tannic texture, persistent and excellent in the aftertaste.
