An essence of sweet cherry grounds the surrounding flavors of leather, iron, spice and tobacco in this firm red, which remains vibrant and refined. Bracing acidity and dense, muscular tannins play out on the long finish...   An essence of sweet cherry grounds the surrounding flavors of leather, iron, spice and tobacco in this firm red, which remains vibrant and refined. Bracing acidity and dense, muscular tannins play out on the long finish. Drink now through 2028. 5,000 cases made. –BS

Some 36 biotypes of Sangiovese are used in the mix and are harvested from 120 single vineyard parcels with primarily Alberese and Galestro limestone soils. It is made from 92% Sangiovese, and 8% Malvasia Nera and Colorino. The bouquet offers bold cherry and plum with spice and soft tobacco. - Monica Larner

Plenty of new wood overlaying the ripe fruit and spice on the nose. Full body, rich and flavorful with lots of vanilla and berry character. A little less new wood would be more pleasing to me but I like the wine's energy...   Plenty of new wood overlaying the ripe fruit and spice on the nose. Full body, rich and flavorful with lots of vanilla and berry character. A little less new wood would be more pleasing to me but I like the wine's energy all the same. Better in 2019.

There is terrific depth to the sweet red cherry and pomegranate fruit. At the same time, the oak is in my view a bit overdone. My impression is that the Gran Selezione could be a meaningfully better wine. -- Antonio Galloni

Racy acidity and austere, fine-grained tannins provide balance and support. Drink 2019–2028. KERIN O’KEEFE
