Machiavelli Chianti Classico Gran Selezione is a luxury Chianti from a 16th-century farm.
The wine’s vivid purple hue is extremely appealing, and the palate is bursting with aromas of raspberries and blackberries, as well as summer flowers and the light scent of vanilla.
It has an incredible smoothness and sense of balance that never wanes, leaving a delectable aftertaste of homemade jam and liquorice.
There is an explanation for Chianti’s popularity, and it demonstrates just how wonderful it can be.
Niccol Machiavelli inherited the Sant’Andrea in Percussina estate in the Chianti Classico hills from his father, Bernardo di Boninsegna, and moved there in the early 16th century during his exile from Florence.
The “Vermiglio” wine, forerunner of today’s Chianti, was already being made and aged in the Casa Machiavelli’s deep cellars.
This Gran Selezione is named after a vineyard that existed on the estate under Niccol Machiavelli’s ownership, close to a spring of exceptionally pure water.
Serve alongside roasted red meats, wild game, and mature cheeses.
