'Stielle' Gran Selezione Chianti Classico DOCG, Rocca di Castagnoli
Elegant wine with very interesting complexity and structure. The colour is intense and bright red. The aroma conjures up notes of red fruits: both sweet and sour cherries, over a spicy and balsamic background. During the bottle ageing the wine acquires an elegance and a tasty persuasiveness.
