Castello di Meleto 2016 – Chianti Classico Gran Selezione

The nose is aromatic and offers power, fine complexity, fine richness as well as tension. It reveals notes of blackberry, wild strawberry and small notes of cassis associated with fine touches of blueberry, small red berries as well as hints of Cuben pepper, local grove and cocoa. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a juicy / slightly acidulous frame, precision, tension, fine freshness and a certain indulgence. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy / juicy blackberry, crunchy cassis and small notes of small crunchy red berries associated with a hint of olive tree / local grove as well as subtle hints of fresh flowers, green cardamom and a very discreet hint of blond tobacco. Tannins are well-built. Good length. A fine bitterness on the finish.
