Crisp, ripe, red berry and cherry aromas are shaped by vibrant, fresh acidity. In the mouth, flavors show classic Sangiovese notes of earth, mushrooms and leather, with a backbone of firm yet elegant tannins. Food Pairings: Impressive concentration and depth, with blackberry and red cherry aromas and flavors set in a beautiful Chianti acidity and elegant tannic structure.

Wine EnthusiastAromas of iris, plum, leather and a whiff of clove lead the nose. The firm, savory palate offers black cherry, red currant, licorice, black pepper and tobacco backed up by assertive, fine-grained tannins. Drink 2016-2022.

Wine SpectatorRipe, with black cherry and plum flavors, this red displays spice, leather and tobacco notes. Dense and monolithic today, showing fruit and structure underneath. Fine length. Best from 2018 through 2027. 1,000 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThis wine has been raised to Gran Selezione status up from Riserva. The 2012 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione La Forra shows warm climate notes of dried cherry, pressed blackberry and mild spice. The wine is relatively balanced with results that feel smooth in texture and mouthfeel. There is a lingering note of scorched earth or black olive that gives the wine a touch of wild rusticity. There may be a slight touch of reduction here.
