Coltassala, Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG
A stunning red from start to finish, alluring for the cherry, plum, cedar, tobacco and mineral aromas and flavors. There is grip too, along with bright acidity, ending in a long, resonant aftertaste. Really complex and balanced. Best from 2022 through 2036.
A decadent nose of vanilla, brambleberries, resin, coffee beans, tobacco and hot stones with a touch of citrus and other fresher elements. Full-bodied and very intense on the palate, but the ripe tannins also show plenty of firmness. The bright acidity carries this through to a delightfully long finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink in 2021.
The Wine Advocate
This wine has now been upgraded from Riserva to Gran Selezione status. The 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Coltassala is a beautifully enriched wine that bursts open with a satisfying display of bold fruit, ripe blackberry, tobacco, spice and tar. There is ample muscle and brawn, but the wine shows impressive balance thanks...
