Chianti Classico San Lorenzo takes its name from the lovely valley that is home to the 18th-century Pianigiani and Ricucci villas. The wine is made entirely with grapes from Castello di Ama vineyards, which are all old plantings or plots planted over a decade ago, and which show the most mature, rounded extracts at time of harvest. The Gran Selezione label was a significant step for the Chianti Classico designation, representing the top of the quality pyramid. Wines in this category are a guarantee for the consumer, in terms of origin and of quality. The production protocol states that all grapes must be produced by the winery itself and the wine goes on sale 30 months from harvest.

Aromas of exotic spice, pipe tobacco, woodland berry and a whiff of French oak take center stage on this fragrant, elegant red. The racy, ethereal palate delivers tart red cherry, tart pomegranate, cinnamon and vanilla framed in taut fine-grained tannins and vibrant acidity. Drink 2019-2026.

Shows fine purity to the cherry, strawberry and leather notes, with a hint of licorice. Ripe, sweet fruit and a juicy texture collide as this plays out on the long finish. Drink now through 2025. 1,500 cases imported.
