Description

Casa Emma Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2015

Casa Emma Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG is made only in the best vintages and with the best Sangiovese grapes.

Brilliant ruby red colour. A haunting bouquet of blackberries and savoury earth notes (mint and balsamic) emerge from the glass to linger endlessly. Dry and full-bodied on the palate with impressive complexity, a good structure and balance of elegant tannins and a vivid acidity. A succulent and rich kaleidoscope of flavours from ripe dark cherries, blackberries and black plum to lifted spicy oak nuances of cedar wood and rolled tobacco leaves. Closes with an extremely persistent finish.

100% Sangiovese from plots at the highest elevations of the Chianti Classico appellation. The plots sit at an altitude of 480 metres and have a limestone, rock and clay soil composition. These vines experience the earliest bud breaks and latest harvest times.

After the harvest, the grapes go through vinification and fermentation in open topped wooden vats. The wooden vats allow the wine to slowly breathe as it ferments. The wine ages for 3 years in 100 HL oak barrels, then ages for another year in bottle.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

 Good ripeness to this red, which shows fruit cake, cedar, tobacco and dried cherries and plums. Full-bodied and chewy with plenty of wood showing through, but the driven acidity is more than capable of handling it. Layered and long on the finish. Drink from 2022.

 – 94 POINTS

 A dose of new oak and pipe tobacco marks the aroma here, backed by flavors of black cherry, plum and iron. Firm and compact on the finish, with a lingering essence of woodsy, tobacco and spice elements. There’s a lot going on here, but this needs time. Best from 2022 through 2040.

 – 92 POINTS

 Sparkling ruby with a fine garnet shimmer. The nose shows notes of earthy components, some truffles and cloves, then ripe wild raspberries and tobacco. Grippy, hearty tannin, salty, is a little brittle at the back.

 The 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione offers a streamlined and well-integrated expression of Sangiovese with warm-vintage aromas of tilled earth and savory spice that serve to the give the wine more padding and volume at the back. Light spice flavors do a great job of framing all that dense, black fruit. Try it with some grilled skewers of liver, onion and tomato.

 This hails from southeast-facing parcels at 450 to 500 metres on schistose soil. Selected bunches are marked during the ripening season and left until the beginning of October to harvest. After a 30-day maceration the wine is transferred to 10hl Austrian barrels. The aromas are still slightly raw, leading with cherry bark, vanilla and balsamic herb. The palate is more fluid and open, demonstrating integrated wood and tannins with some lovely elegance and minerality underneath.
