Features of “Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG San Lorenzo”

Intense and deep ruby red colour rich of orange shades; shiny and elegant. At the beginning, the scent recalls fruits, like over-matured strawberry, black cherry, plum. Then the sensations evolve, recalling tobacco, liquorice, leather and mint. The taste is full of tannins that otherwise are smooth, allowing a great structure, but always balanced. Long and refined persistence, great final.
