Critical Acclaim

WE90 Wine Enthusiast 9/1/2015

"Aromas of ripe plum, scorched earth, dark baking spice, toast and a hint of leather open up in the glass. The ripe palate delivers ripe black cherry, grilled herb, pipe tobacco and a coffee note. Velvety tannins hold up the savory flavors." (90 pts.)

SP92 Wine Spectator Mar 31, 2016

"An opulent style, featuring lush black cherry, blackberry and plum fruit shaded by licorice, tobacco and spice flavors. Powerful and succulent, with a well-integrated structure and a long earth- and spice-tinged aftertaste. Best from 2017 through 2024. 1,000 cases made." (92 pts.)

RP91 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 29th Oct 2015

"This wine was upgraded from Riserva status to Gran Selezione with the recent changes to the denomination. The 2012 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Il Picchio opens to a rich and beautifully saturated appearance. This is a plush, rich, and modern wine with a seamless presentation of dark fruit aromas that are comfortably set against exotic spice and tobacco. There is a bit of tightness and sour cherry on the close that should flesh out with a few more years of bottle aging. The wine is composed of 95% Sangiovese with 5% Canaiolo." (91 pts.)


There are few regions as picturesque as Italy's Tuscany. And there are few regions that produce finer wines, either. Tuscany is home to legendary wine regions Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti, among others, where the red wine grape Sangiovese is king. It's also home to "Super Tuscans," a category of Tuscan wines that don't officially fall within the Italian wine classification system.

Italy is famous for its powerful, sleek, and elegant reds wines from ancient growing areas with legendary names such as Chianti, Barolo, Barbaresco, Montepulciano. Italian white wines are also gaining popularity: Orvieto, Pinot Grigio, and Sauvignon are excellent examples of Italian white wines.

Wines of Italy are complex and flavorful, much like the culture that is their source and the cuisine that is their match.
