The presentation of ZAC 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Docg

This prestigious event dedicated to Chianti Classico was an excellent opportunity to present the new Zac 2016 Gran Selezione to the public, our 100% Sangiovese dedicated to Aunt Anna Corsini. The first harvest for this wine dates back to 2008. In 2016 we made the move to Gran Selezione to honour the 300 years since the Grand Ducal edict of 1716, the document that delimits Chianti Classico for the first time in the modern era.

For tasting also Per Filo 2018

At the Leopolda station, in front of wine professionals and many wine lovers, the second harvest of Per Filo 2018 was also presented. This is our biodynamic wine born in 2017 as part of the Fico Wine project and dedicated to Filippo Corsini.

The differences between our two Gran Selezione

Our two Gran Selezione productions were presented at the event. Don Tommaso, our “classic” Gran Selezione, is made with 80% Sangiovese and 20% Merlot. This wine ages tonneaux, in mainly used, of 500 and 700 litres, for 16 months. Then at least 14 months in bottle.
