Don Tommaso Chianti Classico, “Gran Selezione” starting from 2010 vintage, showcases the natural potential of a blend of Sangiovese and Merlot, enriched with French oak aging in barriques. Its modern and international style remains solidly anchored to the territory. Fruity, deep, and complex, it is a soft, intense, and big wine to drink.
