Chianti Classico DOCG Gran Selezione La Sala, Tasting notes:
Wine of a brilliant ruby colour, rich bouquet on the nose of ripe black cherry, undergrowth, plums and blackberry jam. Intense and soft at the same time, thanks to ripe tannins that delicately envelop the palate. A wine that enhances the characteristics of Sangiovese, with great structure and ease of drinking. Long, savoury and spicy finish.
