Il Picchio Gran Selezione 2018 Chianti Classico DOCG This cru was born in 1988 as a Riserva; from 2011 it becomes Gran Selezione. The vineyard covers 4.5 hectares, is exposed to east/south-east, with a subsoil rich in clay, limestone and microelements and enjoys an excellent temperature range between day and night. Intense aromas of violet, cherry and undergrowth rise from the glass; the fruity flavors are intense, underlined by soft and velvety tannins; the freshness is absolutely bold, balanced just a little by sapidity, spiciness and notes of graphite; the sip is smooth, long and elegant.
