2018 Tenuta di Bibbiano 'Montornello' Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG Italy
This Chianti Classico Gran Selezione has an intense ruby red color with purple hues. A combination of a dense structure and elegance, strength and finesse. Well balanced and harmonious to the palate, with a very pleasant taste and sweetness due to the velvety and ripe tannins. An outstanding flavor wrapped in elegant softness with aromas of sour black cherry, prune, balsamic with sweet spices, cinnamon, and cloves. Very long final persistence.
This wine pairs well with traditional cold cuts: salami and matured sheep and cow cheeses. Roasted white and red meats, pasta with traditional game meat sauces or heavy creamy sauces.

This is really succulent with sliced plums, blackberries and some dark chocolate. It’s full-bodied and beautifully crafted. Long and flavorful with gorgeous polish. From organically grown grapes.
Rated 92 Points Wine Spectator
Harmony and grace are the hallmarks of this red, whose cherry, currant, tobacco, iron, sanguine and underbrush flavors are nicely integrated with the firm structure. Ends on a savory note, with an undercurrent of ripe fruit.
