Galloni 92:Round, sensual and inviting, the 2011 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione San Lorenzo shows what older vines can do in a warm vintage. Rich and beautifully layered in the glass, but also remarkably weightless, the 2011 is all about harmony. Sweet tobacco, mint, crushed flowers and licorice all flesh out in the glass. The style is classic Ama; creamy and resonant to the core. The San Lorenzo is essentially the wine that was formerly known as Chianti Classico Castello di Ama. -- Antonio Galloni Wine Spectator 92:Broad and intense, exhibiting floral, cherry, rhubarb, leather and almond notes. Well-knit and vibrant, with a compact finish. Should stretch out nicely. Best from 2016 through 2026. 7,500 cases made. –BS Suckling 96:This has a dusty character on the nose with soil, dried fruit and blueberry. Flowers too. Full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Tight and structured. Shows wonderful depth of fruit and beauty. Chewy. Better in 2016. Parker-Monica Larner 91:The 2011 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione San Lorenzo is loaded tight with ripe fruit nuances of strawberry, black fruit and prune. San Lorenzo shows a riper, jammy quality of fruit next to Vigneto Bellavista. But, like that other Gran Selezione expression, this wine excels in terms of mouthfeel with polished tannins and a great sense of energy and momentum.
