Gran Selezione, 2013

 

Chianti Classico

€495.00

750ml Bottle

The nose on the 2013 Isole e Olena Chianti Classico Gran Selezione is dark and almost sensual, showing a mix of rich raspberry and cherry, followed by notes of plum, savory herbs, tobacco, hints of forest floor and mint. It is savory on the palate with silky textures contrasted by a spine of brisk acidity, resulting in a toothsome experience with dried cherry, exotic spice, tobacco and a hint of citrus. The finish is long, yet structured, showing dried red fruits, spiced orange and mountain herbs. (95 points)
