Description: The 13th Century Ormanni estate is located in the heart of Chianti, between the towns of Poggibonsi and Castellinai.  For the past 200 years, the estate has been owned by the Brini Batacchi family who has been producing the greatest and true expressions of what the region has to offer.

Etichetta Storica Gran Selezione is Ormanni’s most treasured and celebrated wine; only produced in the best vintages. The Sangiovese grapes are hand-selected and harvested from the oldest vineyards in the area of Barberino Val D’Elsa. At the winery, alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature; the wine is then aged in new oak barriques over the course of 20-24 months.
 
Taste: A pure expression of Sangiovese from Chianti Classico; ruby red in colour with slight garnet bricking at the rim.   The wine is filled with tart and ripe red cherries, red plum, and goji berries.  The wine is notably savoury: showing roasted red tomato, tomato vine, fresh thyme, and oregano.  Following, are notes of sweet balsamic, tar, tobacco leaf, and crushed cinnamon stick.  The wine is full-bodied, dry, with elevated acid and soft, velvety tannins.
Cellaring Potential: Drink now or age 10+ years.
Food Matching: Roasted Pheasant, Panzanella salad, and red chicory with grilled aged pecorino (especially, Pecorino Toscana).
