Blog: Chianti Classico | Classic




Tuscany, a region in central Italy, is famous for its breathtaking scenery, rich culture and, above all, its exquisite wines. Among the many jewels of the Tuscan wine world, Chianti Classico stands out - a wine that embodies history, tradition and terroir in every bottle. In this article, we delve into the fascinating world of Chianti Classico, its Reserva variant and the crowning glory of the series, the Chianti Classico Gran Selezione.

Chianti Classico
Chianti Classico is a wine of remarkable elegance and finesse that thrives in the Chianti region, in the heart of Tuscany. Made from at least 80% Sangiovese grapes, which enrich this wine with a fresh acidity and striking aromas of cherries and spices, Chianti Classico is the epitome of Tuscan winemaking. The combination of other local grape varieties such as Canaiolo and Colorino gives it a unique personality.

Chianti Classico Riserva
The Riserva version of Chianti Classico represents the higher level of quality and refinement. With a longer ageing period of at least 24 months, including a minimum of three months in the bottle, the Chianti Classico Riserva achieves exceptional complexity. This wine develops a fascinating depth and round character, characterized by notes of dried fruit, leather and a fine minerality.

Chianti Classico Gran Selezione
The highest distinction in the Chianti Classico family undoubtedly goes to the Gran Selezione. This wine is made from the best grapes from a single vineyard and reflects the essence of the terroir. With a minimum ageing period of 30 months, including three months in the bottle, the Chianti Classico Gran Selezione presents itself as a fine wine of incomparable quality. Complexity, depth and a harmonious integration of tannins make it a true masterpiece of Tuscan winemaking.

The Chianti Classico, its Riserva version and the Gran Selezione represent the pinnacle of Tuscan wine tradition. Each bottle tells a story of centuries-old craftsmanship, dedication and a deep respect for the unique terroir of the Chianti region. A glass of these exquisite wines is not only a pleasure for the palate, but also a journey through the history and culture of one of the world's most fascinating wine regions. Let yourself be enchanted by the elegance of Chianti Classico and discover the beauty hidden in every bottle of these exceptional wines. - Gerardo [TS01/24]
