Vignamaggio 2015 Gran Selezione Riserva di Monna Lisa Chianti Classico

Vignamggio’s flagship wine Riserva di Monna Lisa was elevated to ‘Gran Selezione’ after the new appellation was officially introduced in early 2013. The first vintage of Gran Selezione Monna Lisa was 2010. Gran Selezione calls for stricter production standards and is the top of the Chianti Classico production pyramid: grapes must be sourced exclusively from estate-owned vineyards and aged for a minimum of 30 months (including 3 months in bottle).

The wine is dedicated to Monna Lisa (a.k.a. La Gioconda painted by Leonardo da Vinci) who spent most of her childhood years at Vignamaggio. The wine is a blend of 85% Sangiovese and 15% of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, carefully sorted and selected from the winery’s prime south-west facing vineyards and it is made only in the best vintages.

Deep ruby red in color, Monna Lisa offers tons of density and structure, yet remains elegant with aromas of dark berries, tobacco and savory herbs. Enjoy with hearty meat dishes, stews and roasts.

Wine Spectator - 94 Points
"A dark, brooding style, this delivers black cherry, blackberry and plum fruit shaded by iron and earth accents. Solidly built, with all the elements in proportion. Fine, lingering finish. Best from 2022 through 2035. 2,000 cases made, 250 cases imported."
