Cinciano Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG, 2016

Italy

Producer

Cinciano

Grape Variety

Sangiovese

I had the opportunity to taste this wine at the Chianti Classico Collection tasting in London in May, 2021, against a serious lineup of some much more expensive Gran Selezione – and it showed well with earthy, marzipan and a bitter cherry aromas. It is medium-bodied with good palate weight and a cherry finish. The hierarchy of rules associated with Chianti Classico means that Riserva wines must be aged for 24 months, while Gran Selezione must be made from a single estate (all Cinciano wines are) and aged for 30 months. Cinciano uses its best grapes for this cuvée picked in the first half of October. It spent 20-24 months in large Slavonian oak casks.
