Chianti Classico Gran Selezione La Prima , Castello Vicchiomaggio

Made from 100% Sangiovese, harvested from a small 2.2 hectare plot, the vines are quite densely planted on a heavy clay soil and yields are very low. These premium grapes are fermented in small stainless steel vats prior to maturation for about a year and a half in new French barriques; the wine is cellared for eight months in bottle before release – only about eight thousand bottles are made. Ruby-red, with brick red tones; the nose shows mulberry and ripe red fruits, violet and sweet spice; the palate is extremely elegant, with integrated tannins and notes of vanilla oak on the finish.
