An important wine combining tradition and innovation. Designed with care to maintain the traditional taste of Chianti Classico, but with a slight spring in its step to keep it from coming across as excessively "rigorous". Serving suggestions: The strong presence of crunchy fruits in the aroma allows a perfect match with cold cuts on top of bruschettas, soups of legumes or even pasta with white-meat sauces or vegetable sauces. Tannins are fresh and straightforward and the acidity is high, which makes it perfect for a Tagliata or a Florentine steak, or for any red meat cooked raw. Very interesting match with medium-aged, savoury cheeses.

Wine SpectatorThis red combines a mix of pungent Tuscan scrub-juniper, rosemary and sage-with pure cherry, strawberry, earth and tobacco flavors. Shows fine harmony and length. Drink now through 2028. 5,000 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Chianti Classico (made with 90% Sangiovese with Canaiolo and Malvasia Nera) delivers rich fruit aromas with cherry and blackberry prominently at the front line. There are subtle touches of spice and cinnamon at the back that give more texture and richness to the overall winemaking approach. This is a mid-weight red wine with a pretty but accessible personality to pair with your favorite Italian meals. You get great value, and 60,000 bottles were made.
