Gran Selezione is the newest quality designation to have been added to the DOCG classification system in Chianti Classico. Gran Selezione takes quality controls a step further than Riserva-- which previously occupied the top tier-- by banning the use of any purchased, or non-estate-grown fruit, in the inclusion of a wine labeled Gran Selezione. This coupled with longer aging requirements (30 months minimum) and minimum levels of alcohol set to 13% designates a band of wines from Chianti Classico producers representative of the appellation's highest quality potential with often limited availability. Match Castello di Bossi Gran Selezione with robust main coursese. Roasted and grilled meats pair easily with Gran Selezione while well-seasoned cheeses and hardy vegetable-based stews broaden the scope.

There's purity to the cherry, strawberry, rose, mineral and herb aromas and flavors in this solidly built red, which shows excellent balance and length. The muscular finish begs for more time for the beautiful fruit to assimilate. Best from 2025 through 2042. 1,700 cases made, 800 cases imported.

Lots of blackberry, black-cherry and lavender aromas with some sage. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Linear and polished red.

This was once a Riserva but has now been promoted to the highest category in the appellation. The Castello di Meleto 2019 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Casi reveals a dark and rich character with black rose, dried currant, spice, cola and crushed stone. This vintage offers pretty complexity and does so with balanced intensity along the way.

Woodsy aromas of pine needles and underbrush blend with spices and herbs before a distinctive note of anise takes over on the nose. On the palate, herbaceous, earthy flavors remain dominant, joined by black cherries and finishing with the citric, astringent bite of orange pith.
