Chianti Classico D.O.C.G. Gran Selezione

Gallule – the ancient name of the property – is also the label of our Chianti Classico Gran Selezione. This wine is made exclusively from Sangiovese grapes grown in centuries-old terraced vineyards on the Antico Podere Gagliole. These landmark protected terraces were already famed for their grapes in medieval times.
This is a wine of great harmony and remarkable depth, rich and complex, and with a lovely garnet hue – qualities that only very old Sangiovese vines can produce.

Best enjoyed at 18°C.

Best maturity for drinking: up to 4-6 years after release.
