Tolaini Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2019

89 units available online.
Product description

This is a sensual wine with notes of cherry fruit, tobacco, leather and hints of licorice and spice. The elegant tannins balance nicely with the fruit, all underlined by a fabulous stratum of acidity, making this a complex wine with incontestable structure and power. A long and satisfying finish confirms this Sangiovese is true to its terroir.

Made with 100% Sangiovese, the 2019 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Montebello Sette is a selection of fruit from a single vineyard with 22-year-old vines in characteristic clay soils with lots of rocks. The wine is redolent of dark fruit, baked plum, cinnamon and tarry spice. This vintage is especially tight and rich in terms of its concentration, and the wine closes with fine tannins over a full-bodied mouthfeel. The fresh acidity is another plus.

93 Points - James Suckling

A focused and very polished Chianti Classico with black cherry, crushed stone and mineral aromas and flavors. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a focused finish. Bark and berry character at the finish. Unfiltered. Firm and racy.

Equally generous (if not a bit more) in its perfume, the 2019 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Montebello Sette takes on a layer of wooded spice, with black cherry, vanilla bean, and scorched earth. It is persistent and drives through the palate with a rich core of red plum, orange rind, and dried Mediterranean herbs. There are building tannins and a long finish with drying earth and cedar remaining.
