Gran Selezione

Consorzio Vino Chianti Classico has announced a new top tier designation “Gran Selezione.” Representing just 10 percent of Chianti Classico production, the Gran Selezione qualification must meet stringent criteria. It must be produced entirely from estate vineyards, have aged a minimum of 30 months in oak barrels, and meet other viticultural and winemaking criteria aimed at providing balance, elegance and overall quality. Finally, Gran Selezione selections must pass a tasting panel that approves it for expressing the distinct terroir and flavor profile of Chianti Classico.
