La Sala del Torriano Il Torriano Gran Selezione 2019

Available for:
The wine shows a bright and deep ruby color. Rich aromas of ripe cherry, forest fruits, wild roses, dried orange peel and raspberry jam. The nose is still young, and yet it gives advance notice of a great evolution with time. Full- bodied, the sip caresses the palate with an ascending rhythm. The tannins are perfectly weaved and the pleasantly sapid aftertaste conveys to the wine its depth and length. Il Torriano enhances the characteristics of Sangiovese in San Casciano in Val di Pesa, that is the elegance and the balance between the soft and the hard part of the wine. This Gran Selezione is great with lamb or ground game, or hard cheeses.

A rich but transparent ruby color, the 2019 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Il Torriano is lifted with bright aromas of red cherry, anise, pine needles, and dried Mediterranean herbs. Medium-bodied, it has good, tangy acidity, dusty tannins, and a clean, earthy finish. It's drinking well now, and although it should hold up over the next 6-8 years, I would drink it now, before it loses its fruit.
