CHIANTI CLASSICO DOCG GRAN SELEZIONE - NEW!!!
CHIANTI CLASSICO DOCG GRAN SELEZIONE
Gran Selezione is produced using the best grapes from the Fattoria Le Bocce vineyards.
The intense tannins of Sangiovese marry with the strong hues of Colorino to give our “Gran Selezione” its decisive color and enhance its drinking pleasure
The expressive territorial qualities of Gran Selezione Stefano Farina unite with those of quality, to give the greatest drinking satisfaction. The complex aromatic fusion of red and black fruits with the spiciness conferred through the various woods used during the refinement process represent the out-and-out uniqueness of Chianti Classico wines.
Our philosophy in producing “Gran Selezione” is to take advantage of our experience and our knowledge to create an important wine: one that is pleasant and represents Chianti in its higher essence, unique in its characteristics. As unique as the air, the earth and the hills of Chianti.
Advanced winemaking techniques and modern refining systems are only strengthened through the ongoing use of sensory skills. The human factor is always at the center of every wine-making decision. The winemaker decides on the timing of maceration and evolution by tasting the wine at every phase of production, giving it “life” and its unmistakable characteristics.
Gran Selezione Stefano Farina is an example of a truly modern wine, which unites structure and pleasantness reflecting its territory, the winemaking history of the Chianti Classico region and its ancient native vines.
In a nutshell, a highly successful combination of age-old tradition and progress.
