Even though the co-operative of Castelli del Grevepesa has already been producing wine for 50 years, its members strive to uphold Tuscan traditions that date back centuries. This Chianti Classico 'Gran Selezione' hails from the southeast facing hills of Lamole, known for their prized Sangiovese grapes. If the word Chianti still makes you recall the straw-wrapped, round bottles of years past, be sure to check out this genuine, age-worthy rendition, and taste the true potential of the region.

"The elegantly structured palate doles out juicy black cherry, crushed raspberry, mocha, white pepper and cinnamon while firm, velvety tannins offer support. It closes on a tobacco note."

Made entirely with Sangiovese, this offers lovely aromas of iris, fresh violet, perfumed berry and a whiff of sweet baking spice. The elegantly structured palate doles out juicy black cherry, crushed raspberry, mocha, white pepper and cinnamon while firm, velvety tannins offer support. It closes on a tobacco note. It’s already delicious but hold for complexity. Drink 2016-2021. (9/1/2015) -94
