||10% Colorino, 90% Sangiovese
||To produce the Gran Selezione we chose the most typical indigenous varieties of the Chianti Classico zone which in this wine express the best of their potential and of the terroir where they come from.
||The grapes for this wine are selected by hand within the best vineyard of Le Macìe estate in Castellina in Chianti.
||After 10 days of alcoholic fermentation, the must goes through 15 days maceration, and then the wine is transferred into wooden barrels for the malolactic fermentation.
||French barriques from Troncais region for about 18 months. The wine refines for another year in the bottle before being released.
||This wine is particularly suited for red meat dishes, game and hard cheeses but it can be enjoyed by itself to better appreciate its qualities.
