Description

Don Tommaso Chianti Classico, “Gran Selezione” starting from 2010, shows the natural potential of a blend of Sangiovese and Merlot.

It is a contemporary-style wine, solidly anchored to the territory. The fruit is deep and complex, it is a soft, intense, and big wine to drink.

Winemaking and Aging

Winemaking

It is a selection of the best Sangiovese grapes of the company. Fermentation takes place in steel tanks and is 18 days for Sangiovese and 16 days for Merlot.

Aging

16 months mainly in 500 and 700 liter tonneaux. Bottle aging of at least 14 months.

Tasting notes

Pairing

To be paired with stewed or cooked dishes or other long-cooked meat preparations, aged cheeses, pigeon confit with beetroot compote, venison with juniper, or duck breast lacquered with honey and mustard, stewed duck, Florentine trippa, beef fillet with sour cherries, braised lamb chops with thyme and a sprinkling of cocoa powder, escargot à la Bourguignonne, risotto with glazed quail and “Aceto Tradizionale” vinegar.
