Castello di Meleto

Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG

The Castello di Meleto Chianti Classico Gran Selezione is the greatest expression of our single-varietal Sangiovese. This is a limited production wine coming from individual parcels located within the Casi and San Piero vineyards. The constant minerality present in our wines is matched here by a gentle power, extraordinary both on the nose and palate. This wine has a great capacity for ageing; only time will reveal its unique characteristics.

Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG


 

Sangiovese

San Piero, Casi

The wine ferments in truncated oak vats. After the maceration it is transferred directly into barriques where the malolactic fermentation occurs and frequent batonnage is performed. Aging takes place in barriques of second and third usage. The maturation period varies from 24 to 30 months according to the vintage. Minimum aging of 6 months in the bottle.

Intense red, almost purple. The nose is powerful and rich, with spicy and balsamic notes accompanied by aromas of ripe red fruit. On the palate it is enveloping, supported by dense but well-balanced tannins that open to a long finish with extraordinary intensity.

18-20 °C

Pairs divinely with truffle dishes and aged cheeses. Excellent with wild game and stewed meats.

arenaria, argilla, galestro
