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.
