Casaloste Gran Selezione Chianti Classico 2015

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  96339

The blue fruits are so intense on the nose but they are really pure. Elderberries, crushed violets, cinnamon, blueberry peel, lemon rind, oranges and blackcurrant essence are all a feature. The palate shows the same intensity but in a held-back structure with tannins that float effortlessly over the layers of taut fruit and bright acidity. A long and chewy yet somehow delicate finish. Drink in 2022. Score - 95. (James Suckling,, Sept. 11, 2018)
