Round, sensual and inviting, the 2011 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione San Lorenzo shows what older vines can do in a warm vintage. Rich and beautifully layered in the glass, but also remarkably weightless, the 2011 is all about harmony. Sweet tobacco, mint, crushed flowers and licorice all flesh out in the glass. The style is classic Ama; creamy and resonant to the core. The San Lorenzo is essentially the wine that was formerly known as Chianti Classico Castello di Ama.

This has a dusty character on the nose with soil, dried fruit and blueberry. Flowers too. Full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Tight and structured. Shows wonderful depth of fruit and beauty. Chewy. Better in 2016. Oct 2015, www.jamessuckling.com

The 2011 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione San Lorenzo is loaded tight with ripe fruit nuances of strawberry, black fruit and prune. San Lorenzo shows a riper, jammy quality of fruit next to Vigneto Bellavista. But, like that other Gran Selezione expression, this wine excels in terms of mouthfeel with polished tannins and a great sense of energy and momentum.

85% Sangiovese, 11% Merlot, 4% Malvasia Nera. Very dark crimson. Sweet and ripe on the nose. Then very marked acidity on the palate. A refined essence of Sangiovese. Very youthful but with masses of drive and edge. Transparent and convincing even if still very youthful. Aug 2016, www.jancisrobinson.com, Drink: 2019-2034
