Melini Chianti Classico Riserva La Selvanella 2012

SKU 6878


Bunches of Sangiovese grapes, picked by hand, are vinified by the traditional red wine method with a long period of maceration. The wine is aged in French oak barrels for a long period, followed by a proper refinement in the bottle. It is dark ruby red in colour, with a rich and complex bouquet and predominant hints of jam and notes of vanilla. It has a full-bodied, austere and sapid flavour, with an elegant aftertaste of wild berries and toasted almonds.

Wine EnthusiastAromas of mature plum, toast, coffee and charred earth lead the way. The soft, rather evolved palate offers dried cherry, espresso and a hint of licorice alongside polished, fleeting tannins. Drink through 2017.
