This dark and delicious wine is composed of 80% Sangiovese and 20% Merlot—late-ripening and early-ripening varietals that come in very handy in a difficult vintage like this. The 2014 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Don Tommaso shows bold intensity and a succulent style. The bouquet offers bright tones of black cherry, spice and cured tobacco. The finish is driven by richness and mid-weight consistency. This Gran Selezione partially ages in new barrique (for about 70% of the total) and the rest goes into neutral barrel.
