Rocca di Montegrossi San Marcellino Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2018


In Stock

“The 2018 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigneto San Marcellino is a dark, brooding wine. Black cherry, incense, tobacco, cloves and a good bit of French oak infuse the 2018 with notable depth. This virile, imposing Gran Selezione impresses with its volume. For my taste, the French oak is on the edge of being too much. Drinking window: 2024-2036. 92 points

This is a stellar set of wines from proprietor Marco Ricasoli Firidolfi. All of the wines are compelling, but as is the case with so many properties, I am super-impressed with the Chianti Classico, a wine that will give readers a very good idea of what the vintage is all about. The Rocca di Montegrossi wines are distinguished by tremendous purity of fruit and exceptional balance.”
