Wine SpectatorA broad, meaty red, this offers black cherry, plum, leather and spice flavors. A solid mineral element emerges as this builds to a long aftertaste. Balanced, this has a power that should be matched to grilled meat. Best from 2017 through 2028. 2,000 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastAromas of woodland berry, forest floor, spice and a toasted note lead the nose of this blend of 95% Sangiovese and 5% Merlot. The elegantly structured palate offers dried black cherry, licorice, clove and espresso alongside tightly knit but polished tannins. Drink 2017-2027.

Wine AdvocateLast year, this wine was a Riserva (now it is a Gran Selezione). The 2012 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Riserva di Fizzano shows ample fullness and ripeness with dark cherry and spice aromas that are both compelling and generous. This wine shows a good sense of lightness and balance. It is easy to drink and approachable, but it also offers bigger structure to pair with succulent meat dishes.
