Tenuta di Capraia is located in the heart of Chianti Classico, which for centuries has been one of the most celebrated wine growing areas of Tuscany. Praised for its art and culture, captivating landscapes, and glorious wine and food, their Gran Selezione is a clear winner offering complex aromas of dark cherry, raspberry and sweet violets. Sourced from carefully-selected vineyards, this Tuscan red represents the iconic elegance of a traditional Chianti Classico, while possessing cellar worthy attributes. "Gran Selezione" is a new classification in Chianti Classico that was introduced a few years ago when winemakers wanted a tier higher than Riserva. The quality and aging go beyond Chianti Classico Riserva, with a minimum of 30 months in oak and three months in bottle before release. The wines must be made from estate grown grapes of a single vineyard, or a selection of the estate's best parcels. 95+ Points in back-to-back vintages, Tenuta di Capraia's Gran Selezione is drop-dead gorgeous and a must have for any Italian wine lover!
"This offers depth along with an alluring expression of cherry, black currant and violet flavors. Charming and approachable, yet there’s a dense structure underneath as well as vibrant acidity. The long finish reveals rosemary and iron elements. Best from 2024 through 2042." The Wine Spectator, 95 Points
