Elegant and complex, this wine from Radda in Chianti has won some of the industry’s most prestigious awards

Gran Selezione wine is only made in the best years. The grapes for this exceptional example come from a single vineyard in Radda, located in an area of Tuscany called “Il Corno” (the Horn). The vineyard sits roughly 400m above sea level, and faces south. Low production yields and optimal exposure to the sun help the grapes to ripen perfectly. Fermentation takes 5 months, with an additional 5 months of malolactic fermentation in new oak on the lees. The wine is aged in the same barrels for 20 months, with an additional 12 months in the bottle.

Tasting notes: Deep ruby colour in the glass. This powerful wine offers rich flavours of dark cherry and blackberry, underpinned by notes of smoke, raisin and dried fig. It’s followed by hints of vanilla, smoke, bread, and enchanting flavours of dark chocolate, cinnamon, coffee, and caramel. This Gran Selezione is dry, with well-integrated, velvety tannins and a long finish.

“Attractive balsamic, coconut, eucalyptus and dried herbal nose with chewy, food-friendly tannins and flavours of cherry, plum and chocolate. Generous, persistent finish.” – Decanter

Ageing potential: 20 years
