2016 Ricasoli Ceni Primo Chianti Classico Gran Selezione

Elegant and welldeveloped tannic content, balsamic notes. Yet again a pure Sangiovese that reveals all the magnificent qualities of this grape. This is further exalted by the small size of the vineyard whose name it bears, which lies in the great valley of the Arbia River, in the southern part of the property. CeniPrimo is located on an Ancient Fluvial Terrace geological formation. The smallest of the three vineyards, only 6 hectares in all, it lies at 300 meters above sea level and has a southwestern exposure. Grapes are handpicked and then selected: only perfect clusters become CeniPrimo.

A beautiful nose with tangerine peel, strawberries, rose petals, boysenberries, cranberries, red plums, red cherries and dark spices. Very grainy and refined on the palate with a real kick from the orange-rind undertones that permeate the entire palate. Tiptoes like a tightrope walker between power and finesse and executes its mission nearly to perfection.
