Vigneti Selvanella Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG Melini 2013

Editorial Review by Snooth Editorial:

Light cherry and strawberry aromas with a touch of earth and earthy spice. Dry on the palate but pleasant with mixed berry notes, this is simple and approachable with a dusty finish.

Dark ruby hue with an orange rim, and black plum, spice and dark chocolate aromas; leads to tart black-fruit and spicy oak flavors, with integrated, warm tannins and and a pleasingly long finish of acidity and sweet, wet wood.

Summary: Chianti re-imagined. A re-interpretation of a modern classic. Re-invigoration of over three hundred years of values that are still relevant today. Melini Chianti Riserva brings together the old and new worlds to reinvent the classic Tuscan red wine. Made from Sangiovese grosso and aged for 18 months in French oak, this wine brings together the modern and the classic. Sourced by Melini from the traditional vineyards in Chianti, located in areas with the best exposure and terroir. Terroir: This Chianti Riserva is sourced from traditional vineyards selected by Melini for their ideal exposure, climate and soils. Soils are primarily alberese and galestro -loose, gravel soils made up of schist and limestone- typical to the Chianti region. Vines are thickly planted and trained using the Guyot and spurred cordon methods. Vinification: The grapes are cold-macerated on their skins for three to four days followed by a cool fermentation in stainless steel. The wines are aged for 18 months in French oak cask followed by 3-6 months in bottle prior to release. Additional Information: The 2012 Chianti Riserva is bright ruby red in color with a nose of raspberry, blackberry and a touch of violet. On the palate the wine is medium in body with soft, jammy berry fruit, spice and a firm finish. Alcohol: 13% Ttl Acidity: 5.1 g/l Residual Sugar: 3.5 g/l

Winemaker's Notes:Chianti Classico Riserva La Selvanella 2006 has a clear, dark, ruby colour with garnet tints, a full, complex bouquet with strong notes of raspberry conserve and of irises and hints

Melini's crowning glory is Chianti Classico La Selvanella Reserva, standard-bearer of the zone's most traditional style. The nose is complex, pervasive and elegant, its fruity notes mingling with very intense, unusual mineral and smoky sensations. The gutsy palate displays well-balanced acidity, sweet, tight-knit tannins that are never woody, and extraordinary length. The result is out of this world, perhaps the best Selvanella ever.

Dieser Chianti Riserva der höchsten Qualitätsstufe DOCG stellt einen Meilenstein in der Geschichte dieser berühmten Weinanbauregion dar. Seit 1969 werden die Trauben aus der Einzellage VIGNETI LA SELVANELLA separat vinifiziert und ausgebaut. Im Bouquet entfaltet sich eine klassisch-feine, ausgewogene Palette von Aromen, die vielversprechender nicht sein könnte. Dieser erste Sinneseindruck wird durch einen stilvollen, strukturierten, fruchtigen und verarbeiteten Körper im Gaumen bestätigt. Das Finale ist anhaltend und von einer exemplarischen Ursprünglichkeit und Echtheit.
