As seems to be the norm for the 2016 vintage this sangiovese has a strong deep colour. The nose is quite deep and concentrated also with morello cherry and blistered cherry but pleasantly also notes of fennel and lavender. Certainly a more aromatic vintage. Palate shows that northern chianti classico breadth and width with latent fruit power. Darker cherries, truffled notes and savoury detail build around the tannin/acid matrix. Fashionably late tannins leave no doubt that this a wonderful Tuscan vintage. Very similar to the much lauded 2006.
