Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigneto San Marcellino 2015

Mostly Sangiovese, with a little of the very rare Pugnitello, from the San Marcellino vineyard which surrounds the parish church of the same name. Made only in outstanding vintage and aged for 16-18 months in barriques, its bouquet is full and complex with spice and mineral notes. It has excellent structure, balance, and prolonged persistence.

"The 2015 Chianti Classico Vigneto San Marcellino is fabulous. Sweet red cherry, red plum, mint, sweet pipe tobacco, cedar, licorice, blood orange and dried herbs all race out of the glass. The Sangiovese is so expressive. Even so, the 2015 is a wine of reserve. I would cellar it for at least a few years, as it has clearly entered a period of post-bottling closure. Its energy and vibrancy are notable.'' 96 points, Antonio Galloni
