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.
