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.
