Chianti Classico Gran Selezione

IL GALLO NERO:
From our vineyards in the municipality of Castelnuovo Berardenga, the noblest land of origin of Sangiovese, from deep, extremely rocky soils with very little organic substance, where the fruit is a gift rewarding great wisdom and sacrifice. A long-lived wine with a very distinctive character.
