Wine AdvocateThis wine opens to rich intensity and a dark purple-blackish color that is simply gorgeous to behold. The 2013 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Colonia is a superb expression that delivers so much joy on almost every measurable level. This vintage offers superb density and intensity with sharply defined aromas of black cherry, ripe blackberry, spice, leather and moist tobacco. There is a sweet note on the close that lasts for a minute or two before returning your taste buds to sophisticated and savory flavors. This is a gorgeous, gorgeous achievement.
Wine EnthusiastExotic spice, red berry, blue flower and a whiff of French oak aromas emerge in the glass. Youthfully austere, the firmly structured palate delivers raw sour cherry, pomegranate, star anise and powdered sage. Tightly knit fine-grained tannins grip the finish while vibrant acidity lends balance. This will benefit with several more years of aging. Drink 2021-2033.
