Tasting Notes

An exceptional parcel of almost 10 hectares organic vineyard of Sangiovese in the Corsini family estate, on the hills of San Casciano in the heart of Chianti Classico. This is where the Gran Selezione Don Tommaso was born, in an extraordinary vintage like 2015. A purple wine with ruby nuances, with a complexity that reveals grace and passionate character. Pepper notes season the charming fragrances of violet, with the black and red berries, blueberry, blackcurrant and cassis shaded by licorice, caramel and cocoa. Intensity and elegance of the wine show in a round body rich in fruit, with well-defined spicy tannins, and a finish on the balsamic notes of myrtle with a nice minerality.
