The 2018 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Don Tommaso is an organic wine and earned the Gran Selezione distinction in 2014. There has always been a tiny cut of Merlot in this Sangiovese-based wine (that was first produced in 1995). In this vintage, the French grape accounts for 15% of the blend. This is a lovely wine with a soft and plush side that supports generous tones of cherry, dark fruit and baking spice. The wine's rich and velvety texture is what stands out most.

Italy's most ancient wine region, Tuscany may not be a heavyweight in terms of quantity, but as the home of two of the country's most famous fine wines – Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino – it certainly holds its own in terms of quality. Tuscany's climate ranges from Mediterranean on the coast to continental deep in the Apennines. More than two thirds of the province is covered with hills, an important terroir factor in its fine wines.
