Banfi Chianti

Fonte Alla Selva Gran Selezione Chianti Classico DOCG

The name means “fountain in the forest” and refers to the gurgling stream and towering trees said to have been created by the Etruscan gods to give life to the once dry and barren land.

Fonte alla Selva is an excellent expression of Chianti Classico, whose round body and character perfectly reflect the Banfi quality standard.

Banfi Chianti 2014 Fonte alla Selva Gran Selezione Chianti Classico Docg

Alluring aromas of dark berry, saddle leather, truffle and tilled soil meld together with dark spice. The bright medium-bodied palate shows cranberry, sour cherry and star anise framed in polished tannins. Vibrant acidity lends verve. Drink through 2024.
