97pts Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate
Pull together a platter of assorted Italian salumi, some olives and tomato bruschetta and you'll be ready to pour your first glasses of Felsina Colonia Gran Selezione Chianti Classico. A delicious next step if you're grilling is lamb burgers with a tomato mint chutney on top. Toast the buns and enjoy! If you're going meatless, make it a spring asparagus risotto. For a crowd, there's nothing better to bring out the earthy side of this Tuscan treasure than a veal roast with wild mushrooms. Refill your glasses and savor bite-sized chunks of aged Pecorino with some toasted walnuts and dried cherries. Sarai contento di averse fattowinelovers.

Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate:  "This wine opens to rich intensity and a dark purple-blackish color that is simply gorgeous to behold. The 2013 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Colonia is a superb expression that delivers so much joy on almost every measurable level. This vintage offers superb density and intensity with sharply defined aromas of black cherry, ripe blackberry, spice, leather and moist tobacco. There is a sweet note on the close that lasts for a minute or two before returning your taste buds to sophisticated and savory flavors. This is a gorgeous, gorgeous achievement. Drink 2019-2035."

Winery:  "An intense ruby red with a wide range of aromas. Earthy, spicy, minerally, toasty, with pleasing aromas of wild berries. The palate is intense with notable tannins, which aid with long aging. Wonderful concentration and typicity. Pairs well with red meats, game, and aged cheese."
