The style of the Rodáno Chianti bottlings is quite traditional, with Sangiovese playing a dominant role in all of the estate's various bottlings. The Chianti Classico "normale" is aged entirely in large Slovenian "botte." Like all great traditional Sangiovese-based wines, the Rodáno wines offer up lovely, bright acidity that adds freshness and focus on the palate, and makes them outstanding partners at the table.

"The 2016 Chianti Classico is gorgeous. Wild cherry, tobacco, cedar, smoke and earthy notes give the 2016 a decidedly somber, mysterious personality, all of which are further enhanced by the wine's palpable weight and sense of gravitas. This is such a distinctive wine. At first quite reticent, the 2016 really opens up with time in the glass, gaining in both aromatic intensity and finesse. The 2016 has a lot to say, that much is clear."

Bright cherry fruit is matched by earth, iron and tobacco flavors in this sleek red. Well-built, with dusty tannins lining the finish. Drink now through 2023.
