Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Ipsus Il Caggio 2015

Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Ipsus Il Caggio 2015

This is the first vintage released commercially. It was poured first during the vertical tasting led by Giovanni and his team in the ageing cellar of Ipsus. The vintage itself was spectacular across Europe as you will know. The nose is dominated by ripe red and black fruit aromas, but some herbal notes start to appear with some aeration. This beginning of evolution shows the potential of the wine. On the palate, the wine is elegant, pure and powerful; rather serious too. Cherry flavours dominate the palate. There is a good structure to allow some further ageing. Mineral and leather notes comprise the mid palate. It is certainly not your regular Chianti. The intention of Giovanni Mazzei is to transcend the appellation. This first opus is very promising.
