Chianti Classico Gran Selezione
Tuscany :: Italy
Last born in the Casaloste family, it expresses all the refinement and power of the Sangiovese grape produced in the Chianti area. It is obtained by combining the balance of the grapes coming from the best selections of the Eastern and Western sides of the farm. In fact, the morning light allows the grapes to express the greatest alcoholic strength while the afternoon light intensifies the aromatic sphere of the Sangiovese itself.

30 months in French oak barriques (Allier).
Deep ruby red color, bright and clear.
The bouquet is rich of fresh notes, eucalypt mixed with developed aromas reminiscent of tamarind.
