“This is a 100% expression of Sangiovese that was fermented in large oak casks and aged in stainless steel (for six months) followed by 16 months in tonneaux. The 2014 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Montebello Sette is truly elegant and beautiful despite everything you may have heard about this challenging vintage. The wine reaches for a level of finesse and nuance that can only be achieved when the winemaking team is pushed to obtain the highest quality despite adverse conditions. The fruit is generous, round and supple. Delicate notes of licorice, cola and crushed rock add to the complexity.” - ML
This is a sensual wine with notes of cherry fruit, tobacco, leather and hints of licorice and spice. The elegant tannins balance nicely with the fruit, all underlined by a fabulous stratum of acidity, making this a complex wine with incontestable structure and power. A long and satisfying finish confirms this Sangiovese is true to its terroir. Organic
When the Tolaini team of enologists discovered that the spectacular clay and galestro soil, slope and exposition of Tolaini Montebello vineyard number 7 produced impeccable Sangiovese: pure in spirit, and transcendent in quality, their mandate became clear: to create a single vineyard 100% Sangiovese, Chianti Classico Riserva.
Produced solely in the best vintages, Gran Selezione is a single vineyard wine; the 100% Sangiovese estate fruit is born in Tolaini's organically farmed Montebello Vineyard "numero sette".
