Chianti Classico 2011 Gran Selezione, San Lorenzo, Castello Di Ama
The previous vintage was #6 on the Wine Spectator Top 100 for 2014. This wine is one of the newly designated Gran Selezione DOCG. Winemaker Marco Pallanti has farmed this estate in Chianti Classico since 1982, and he knows its vineyards well, producing acclaimed single-vineyard wines with the help of wife and co-owner Lorenza. San Lorenzo is a small valley, with 50 acres of vines planted in a mix of limestone and clay at an elevation of 1,650 feet. The 2011 is 80 percent Sangiovese, with Malvasia Nera and Merlot. James Suckling scored this 2011 96 points saying "This has a dusty character on the nose with soil, dried fruit and blueberry. Flowers too. Full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Tight and structured. Shows wonderful depth of fruit and beauty. Chewy. Better in 2016."
