"Tasting Notes: "Melini’s crowning glory is Chianti Classico La Selvanella Reserva, standard-bearer of the zone’s most traditional style. The nose is complex, pervasive and elegant, its fruity notes mingling with very intense, unusual mineral and smoky sensations. The gutsy palate displays well-balanced acidity, sweet, tight-knit tannins that are never woody, and extraordinary length. The result is out of this world, perhaps the best Selvanella ever. Three Glasses."- Gambero Rosso, March 2005
