Outer quote mark This opens with earthy aromas of tilled soil, leather, game, dark berry and graphite. The firm palate offers up juicy blackberry, dried black cherry, notes of grilled porcini, peppercorn, thyme and tobacco alongside velvety tannins. It closes on a licorice note. Hold for complexity.

With the newly minted 'Gran Selezione' designation now in place in Chianti, the famous black Tuscan rooster on the neck has started power-lifting and is in excellent strutting form, as demonstrated by this rich, muscular, well-wrought Chianti Classico from Panzano. Not just sinew and brawn though, this wine delivers an arresting, perfumed nose and solid scaffold of plum, blackcurrant and cherry fruit and spice to complement the structured, dusty tannins that characterize the long finish. With fine depth and complexity, this brazen Tuscan beauty will evolve for ten years or more.

This is one of the best of the “new” Gran Selezione Chianti Classico selections I’ve had. The wine exhibits lots of power, depth and character but still seems to be Chianti. I love Panzano, it gives a little more richness and the flavors are more saturated, and in this case darker, more plum than cherry but still focused bright, not fat or muddled. The wine has a powerful structure, but not harsh just powerful and a layer of richness that goes on and on. This is a really great wine, that has excellent aging potential and portends a great future for this new appellation.
Drink from 2015 to 2025
