Chianti Classico 2015

The focus of the Consortium is on enriching the character and quality of the wines produced in each of the nine communes, and in so doing, when raising a glass of Chianti Classico in the near future you’ll be able to instantly point out the provenance of the Sangiovese from within the nine communes of the Chianti Classico

The New York Public Library, Wednesday May 13th – Eight Chianti Classico, Gran Selezione wines were introduced at the “An Exploration of the Terroirs of Chianti Classico” masterclass seminar led by the General Director of the Chianti Classico Consortium, Sergio Zingarelli, Antonio Galloni and a total of 30 wineries were represented at the walk around tasting. Not all wineries produce the Gran Selezione, demanding that 100% of the grapes must be from the winery’s estate, and not purchased. Antonio Gallon was excellent at simplifying the task at hand rather than confusing it.

Gran Selezione is the capstone of the Chianti Classico quality pyramid with the sole intent of enriching the character and quality of the wines produced in each of the nine communes, and in so doing, when raising a glass of Chianti Classico in the near future you’ll be able to instantly tell the provenance of the wine.

There will be a spotlight on the estate winery and the agronomist will work closely with the winemaker focusing on the fruit and the flavor development. Together, they will zero in on a picking window to maximize the potentials of the fruit and finally the winemaker will accentuate the fruit and the aging potentials of the vintage while staying true to each of the individual commune. The sun exposure, geography and altitude all play a crucial role in producing distinct fruit that is at the very heart of each bottle of wine and the very essence of each commune, producing wines that are so diverse, yet all fall under the Chianti Classico , the territory lying between the provinces of Florence and Siena.
