Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Tenuta Fizzano

the winery’s historic cru, it already had all the characteristic of the Gran Selezione before the new category was born. It is made using grapes grown on the vineyard of the same name in Fizzano, which extends across 35 hectares of sandy, pebbly soils that are perfect for exalting the fragrances of the Sangiovese grape.
Arriving at the Tenuta Fizzano estate and finding yourself in front of 35 hectares of highly specialized vineyards with an enviable south-westerly exposure, featuring highly ordered rows that work their way across sinuous hillsides, it is easy to understand why ‘Chiantishire’ is renowned the world over. This is the evocative backdrop against which we harvest the grapes that will be used to produce our Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Tenuta Fizzano. Bright ruby-red in color, with ripe berry fruit overtones and a strong mineral note, it is an elegant wine that lasts and lasts on the palate. It has a verve and a character that allow it to mature over time without losing its fascination.
