Description

Tags: Chianti Classico, Sangiovese
Type: Bottle / RED
Vigna San Marcellino is both youthfully fresh and maturely complex. It includes a healthy dose of the deeply coloured Pugnitello grape, and both this and the Sangiovese saw long post-fermentation macerations of over 30 days in 2016. Liquorice, tarragon and broom interlace with exuberant plum and understated toasted nuances that are seductive. Laden with black cherry and rich, velvety tannins, the palate is creamy in texture, while underlying chalkiness and saline minerality lend energy, leading to a sappy, refreshing finish. 96 POINTS, DECANTER (DRINKING WINDOW 2023-2035)

Chianti Classico's superb 2016 vintage yielded some excellent wines, and Marco Ricasoli-Firidolfi's Gran Selezione is among the best we've tasted. The wine stands out for its combination of firm structure, elegant texture and vibrant flavors. The fruit tones are dark and plummy, a nod to the six percent of pugnitello in the blend, and the wine unfolds to reveal layers of licorice, tobacco and subtle spice. Fine tannins give shape to those rich flavors, and well-integrated acidity lifts the finish. 96 POINTS, WINE & SPIRITS  (DRINKING WINDOW 2023-2035)
