    Winemaker's Notes:

    Chianti Classico Riserva La Selvanella 2006 has a clear, dark, ruby color with garnet tints, a full, complex bouquet with strong notes of raspberry conserve and of irises and hints of vanilla, cinnamon and leather. The flavor is full, warm and savory with an elegant and lingering aftertaste of woodland undergrowth and toasted almonds. It can be kept longer than usual, and improves with time.

    Chianti Classico Reserva La Selvanella is Fattorie Melini's top wine and is a benchmark for Italian wine. With its 1969 debut vintage Tre Bicchieri veteran, La Selvanella was the first wine made from a single vineyard in Chianti and among the first in Italy. Gambero Rosso has declared La Selvanella a "crowning glory" and "standard-bearer of the zone's most traditional style."
