"A pure expression of Sangiovese, 2011 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Montebello Vigneto N. 7 struck me as one of the most authentic and territory-driven wines in this new, elite category at the top of the Chianti Classico pyramid. The wine stands out for the true sense of varietal character it presents. Soft cherry and cassis render a delicate side of the bouquet, while spice, grilled herb, smoke and pressed rose hold up the rear. This Grand Selezione offers a simple, streamlined palate with a pretty embroidery of aromatics that change and shift as the wine warms in the glass. It earns points for overall elegance and harmony."
