Deep ruby in color, this wine exudes pronounced aromas of wild berries, interlaced with hints of vanilla and spicy notes. The palate is intense with great structure, texture and harmony, leading to a long and lingering finish. Pairs perfectly with roasted, braised or grilled meats, like a traditional fiorentina T-bone steak.

The 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione is a powerful, super-concentrated wine. Super-ripe black cherry, bittersweet chocolate, spice, new leather, licorice and espresso are all kicked up a few notches. This is an especially dense, extracted style. I find the 2016 a bit over the top for Chianti Classico.

Aromas of game, blue flowers, leather and damp underbrush lead the nose. The extracted palate offers prune, licorice and roasted coffee bean alongside a hint of rusty nail. Grainy tannins leave an assertive, astringent close.
