Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG (0,75 lt)
It is the product of the best Sangiovese grapes and a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon. It is aged in oak barrels of Allier and then in the bottle.
Intense ruby with a nose that remembers black wild berries, cocoa and spices. Gorgeously structured. With powerful elegant tannins, this is an impeccably balanced wine with a long persistence.
