Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG

The splendid 2008 harvest was the first vintage of the Tolaini Chianti Classico Riserva and with the 2011 vintage the Riserva became obsolete and was replaced indefinitely with the Tolaini Chianti Classico Gran Selezione. The team at Tolaini has a relentless drive to not only produce the best but to go beyond and to redefine what was previously considered the pinnacle. This time it was the creation of the new DOCG Gran Selezione that was the catalyst for Tolaini, who wanted to produce only one Chianti and that Chianti would have to be second to none. For not only does Tolaini adhere to the stringent new criterion, Tolaini exceeds what is required by the new DOCG.
