Carpineto Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2015

Tuscany, ItalyMade from estate sangiovese from a meagre two hectare cru, this Chianti Classico Gran Selezione shows a ripe, luscious nose of dark cherries layered with perfumed florals, fresh herbs, and licorice, with a hint of vanillin and oak spices coming from 18 months of ageing in French oak. Finely built yet firm tannins are balanced by vibrant acidity, resulting in a wine that's densely concentrated yet beautifully balanced with excellent length and power.Tasted: 05 September 2022Tasted by: Geoffrey Moss MW and HJ ChaPrices:
