Nittardi Gran Selezione 2020

Nittardi Gran Selezione is based on our best Sangiovese grapes. It is produced only in the best vintages and represents best the terroir of Nittardi with the know-how of our winemaking team guided by Carlo Ferrini. 2020 is the first vintage we produce a Nittardi Gran Selezione. Nittardi Gran Selezione grows in our best vineyard, the Vigna Alta. The vineyard lies on a south-facing hill at 500 meters above sea level and has a soil of limestone, called locally Alberese that gives structure and power to the wine and schist, called locally Galestro that engenders the wine with an elegant minerality and freshness.
We decided to create a new wine that differs from our Nittardi Riserva as this had since 1997 always a small amount of Merlot in the blend. Our Nittardi Gran Selezione is a return to the past with the knowhow we picked up in the last 30+ years.
As all our wines it is certified organic.
