2016 was an expressive and elegant vintage. THere was ample sunshine
and just enough rain to hold off harvest, giving the fruit more precious
time on the vine. Warm days and cool nights produced wines with ripe
fruit flavors, vibrant acidity and explosive aromatics. The nose exudes
black cherries, fresh cut roses and cedar. The tannins are supple, held in
place by firm acids. Flavors of ripe plums, caramel, cinnamon and earth
tones fill the palate. The finish shows black tea, cloves and lingering bay
leaf. 2016 will be remembered well, and has the structure and acids to
age beautifully.

This wine just jumps at you with immediate notes of ripe cherry, chocolate, tobacco and toasted espresso bean. The 2017 Chianti Classico is robust on every level, a very modern and contemporary take on this Italian classic. There's a lot of sunny heat and energy in this vintage, a great choice for a cheerful plate of Tuscany's pici al buristo. The blend is 85% Sangiovese and 15% Merlot. With 95,750 bottles produced, you cannot beat this terrific value.
