A dusting of bittersweet chocolate coats the black cherry and blueberry fruit in this firmly structured red. Bitter almond and earth accents chime in on the dry finish. Best from 2021 through 2035.
The 2016 Chianti Classico is 95% Sangiovese and 5% Merlot. The is an easy-drinking red wine with a clean and direct personality. The mouthfeel is compact and hollow, although the bouquet is nicely endowed with wild berry, spice and earthy aromas.
