Chianti Classico "Gran Selezione" 2015 was conceived as a wine for wine lovers with a refined palate. "It is matured six months longer than the Reserve and comes from estate vineyards. These features raise the bar and put it in competition with wines such as Brunello". The complexity of the olfactory sensations has distinctive notes of wild berries, hints of vanilla and spice notes. These aromas are amplified in intensity, consistency and persistence, emitting a young and elegant taste. This is a wine that is inserted among the 'Hot Wines' of the prestigious Wine Spectator with ninety-five points - "A red that shows depth and complexity, wrapping you with sensual aromas of black cherry, currant, violet, blood notes, leather, goudron. Rich and soft, with imposing but refined tannins. Presents great balance and persistence. Excellent from 2021 to 2038." Served at 68°F, the 2015 Chianti Gran Classico "Gran Selezione" pairs gastronomically well with large roasts, grilled meats, braised meats and, in particular, with Florentine steak. This 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione prepares you for yet another great story of Carpineto wines.
