Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Tenuta Poggio ai Mandorli, Trambusti

Gran Selezione is the new Chianti Classico tier above Riserva which came into being in 2013; wines wishing to be defined by this appellation must be made from 100% estate-grown grapes. The estate of Poggio ai Mandorli was recently purchased by Trambusti; there are 15 hectares of vineyards here. The estate is situated just five miles north of Greve, one of the originally identified Classico villages by Grand Duke Cosimo III of Tuscany in 1716, in the heart of the region. About 90% Sangiovese, there are small quantities of Merlot and Syrah in the blend, the wine is aged for six months in French oak barrels. Complex and elegant aromas of wild berries and violets are backed by a savoury, smooth palate.
