I prefer this wine to Fèlsina's top-shelf Fontalloro. The 2018 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Colonia is irresistibly angular and tight opening a profound view onto what makes Sangiovese so expressive and unique especially when planted in the right territories. The bouquet is savory and almost sanguine with iron ore rusty nail and baked clay. But there's plenty of fruit as well in the form of wild berry and black cherry that adds to the dimension and dynamic freshness of the mouthfeel. The 2018 vintage saw a few moments of heat during the summer but the Colonia vineyard is protected by forests and cooler altitudes. Give this wine time to soften in the bottle.

Vinous: 97 Points

The 2018 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Colonia is fascinating to taste next to the Rancia as the two parcels are adjacent. Rich and substantial in the glass Colonia is textured and ample qualities that become increasingly apparent over time. Rugged rocky terrain seems to amplify power explosive verticality and acidity.
