The 2016 Chianti Classico is gracious, perfumed and wonderfully lifted, with tons of floral and savory character. Medium in body and lithe, the Chianti Classico is full of personality. Sweet red cherry, tobacco, cedar, licorice and mint add shades of nuance to this striking Chianti Classico. Silky tannins round things out in style. The 2016 opens beautifully with time in the glass, showing remarkable complexity and pedigree at this level.
