Carus Vini, Gaudio, Chianti Classico Gran Selezione, Tuscany, Italy, 2013
Platinum: Best Chianti
90% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon
A nose of impressive depth and complexity, with cassis and polished, floral, black fruit characters allied to savoury tobacco notes. The palate is densely packed, with generous tannins and harmonious oak influence supporting. Considerable ageing potential here.
