A bottle of Panzano gran selezione, a Chianti classico docg gran selezione red wine

Sangiovese selection from the Panzano area, famous since time immemorial for the quality of its wines. South of the village, the hills slope down to form what has for centuries been known as the “Conca d’Oro” (Golden Basin). The medium-high altitude (300-450 m above sea level), together with the exceptional exposure to the sun and the land particularly rich in clay and limestone, create the conditions for the finest quality winegrowing. Very intense ruby red in colour. It has an intense and complex aroma with notes of violet and hints of spices. Full-bodied, sapid flavour with elegant and velvety tannins.
