2015 Rocca di Montegrossi "San Marcellino" Chianti Classico Gran Selezione

SKU #1494056 95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark A selection made from the San Marcellino vineyard which includes a plot of 50-year-old vines. The soil here is extremely rocky, composed mainly of alberese - a hard marl rich in calcium carbonate which tends to give deeply coloured wines. There is a lot to love in this wine. Enticing red and black currants are demurely nuanced with toast and spice. Ample and mouth filling without being heavy, the palate is abundantly layered with velvety textured tannins. Purity of fruit is preserved throughout and this finishes with mouth-watering salinity. (MM) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A broad, dense red, with ripe plum, black cherry and blackberry flavors, framed by vibrant acidity and burly tannins. Earth, sanguine and tobacco accents chime in. All the components are proportioned correctly, but this will take some time to integrate fully. Fine length and freshness. (BS) Inner quote mark (8/2020)

This is the actuality of a supreme classic Chianti Classico in its best vintage, and a treat for all that are lucky to grab a hold of this not regularly made vineyard site. Aged for 2 years in barrique then 2 years in bottle prior to release, this wine shows broad maturity with a silkiness and great length. Wild blue berries are the concentrated fruit with a back end of coco nibs, vanilla and texture. The body of this wine is medium to medium plus but the fruit tannins are grippy enough to put up against Osso Bucco or just simply a charred ribeye steak with porcini butter.

This boasts a deep ruby/purple color in addition to sweet vanilla (from French oak), and lots of black cherries, raspberries, and currants with hints spice, Tuscan dust and minerals. There is a great texture on this full- bodied wine; it has a long, authoritative finish that combines power with elegance. So… pull the cork a few hours before you throw pork roast on the Q’ and enjoy the last days of Summer.
