Vigneto la Casuccia Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG

Italy, Tuscany



Beginning in 1978, certain parcels were identified as possessing outstanding soil and microclimates due to extensive research into the terroir of the Castello di Ama vineyards. 1982 was Marco Pallanti’s first harvest. Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigneto Bellavista has always set the standard for the fine wines of Castello di Ama. A blend of Sangiovese and Malvasia Nera, the wine fully conveys its distinctive personality with the Malvasia Nera aromas, which lend a floral and intriguing character. Alongside the beauty of the bouquet, this wine is essentially centred on the finesse and elegance of the palate and “that subtle alternation between muscular power and grace.

Crazy aromas of wild hyacinths, blueberries, rose petals, lilies, jasmine, incense, black plums and dark chocolate. Hints of earth and mushrooms, too. The complexity is off the scale. The palate is all about the acidity, which could be edgy enough to throw you off a cliff, but the seamless tannins and beautiful, long finish are also unmistakable in their beauty and finesse. A wine that makes you think. Better in 2021, but it is already a beauty.

Wine Spectator

This has drive and elegance, an ideal foil for the cherry, black currant, wild herb and mineral flavors. Shows energy and balance, though this will need time for all the elements to integrate fully. Offers a nice, chewy, licorice-tinged finish. Best from 2022 through 2038. 25 cases imported.
