Vigneti La Selvanella Riserva Chianti 2010

*Outstanding 5* - 95 Points - Decanter Panel Tasting August 2014*

Melini are an estate that groups five farms together in Chianti and Chianti Classico. Of these five farms La Selvanella is the jewel in the crown. This was first made in 1969 and is traditionally made with around two years spent in large old oak casks. Each taster in the Decanter Panel tasting scored this wine 18.5/20 - 95 points.

'Masculine and generous with forest fruit aromas. Rustic with flavours of leather and wild game and gripping tannins. Pump and intense this has great texture and spice on the finish. It is textbook Sangiovese - complex yet elegant.' - Andrea Briccarello, Decanter Panel Tasting, August 2014

'Masses of ripe berry fruit and strong spicy notes. Balanced and well rounded with cleverly judged tannins and a warm, ripe aromatic finish; a stylish wine.' - Michael Garner, Decanter Panel Tasting, August 2014

'This is wound-up and taut - a respectable classic. Needs time to unwind but the fruit is there, along with some lovely floral notes. It ticks ALL the boxes.' - Emily O'Hare, Decanter Panel Tasting, August 2014

Recommended Review by Victor Dalikov
Didn't have high hopes for it until I seen it in person and tasted it. The name Vigneti La Selvanella Riserva Chianti gave off Italian vibes and I was skeptical of how they'd tie in a culture to its be honest? I love it, it's a new favorite. (Posted on 10/22/2015)
