Castello Vicchiomaggio La Prima 2012 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione, $42.49-$49.99, 93 points, poured a ruby red pearl color with a broad clear wine ring.
Aromas of earthy black cherry and a subtle floral note were pleasant.
Medium-bodied with vibrant acidity and firm grainy tannins carried clean, crisp, and delicious flavors of cherries, black tea, oak, plums and a hint of spearmint.
Finished long on the trailing palate, easy spices, and a perfect 13.5% alcohol.
Paired wonderfully with my spinach ravioli and hot Italian sausage.
Varietals were 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot.
