Castello Fonterutoli`s Gran Selezione is a meticulous blend from 50 different estate-owned plots within the commune of Castellina in Chianti. 92% Sangiovese with 8% a mix of Malvasia Nera and Colorino, it aged for 20 months in small French oak barrels (60% new), which has given this wine admirable complexity of aroma and richness of texture. Bright, mid ruby in the glass, this is a rich, flavoursome, elegant red wine, with lifted aromas of red cherries and dried flowers, with an attractive savoury undertone. It has precise structure, generous middle and a very persistent length (for drinking now – 2028+).
