Chianti Classico Grand Selection DOCG

Certified organic

Wine produced exclusively in great vintages and with the best grapes selected in the vineyard of the same name which surrounds the Pieve di San Marcellino , in Monti in Chianti : an area of ​​about 7 hectares where the Sangiovese (1.5 hectares of which boast 50 years of age) is flanked by Pugnitello (0.9 hectares), an ancient Tuscan vine perfectly complementary to Sangiovese and capable of enhancing its colour, structure and aroma.

Since 2006 Pugnitello has been present in the San Marcellino cuvée with a minimum of 5%. Maturation takes place for a period of about 24 months in medium toasted Allier barriques. Bottled without filtration to keep its qualities of elegance and finesse more intact, it ages in the bottle for 24 months before being placed on the market. Brilliant ruby ​​in color, it has ample, complex and enveloping aromas where fruity notes of raspberry and floral violet stand out as well as evident spicy and mineral notes.

San Marcellino has an excellent structure, with firm but elegant tannins accompanied by a slight harmonic sapidity. It is a wine of great balance and with a long persistence. It reaches its peak of maturity between 15 and 20 years. The average production is around 18,000 bottles .
