Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 'Rialzi' Frescobaldi 2017

Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Rialzi is a rich tuscan expression of Sangiovese only, originating from an aging process in barriques for at least 24 months. It has a bright ruby red and it develops an intense bouquet of wild berries and cherries, with hints of tobacco, star anise and coffee beans. At the palate it is warm and soft, with round tannins. It has a final balsamic persistence
