Great color. A shiny, very-intense purple. Broad variety of aromas with hints of mint blended with spices then prune and berries. Creamy on the palate with a solid body and soft, pleasant, well-distributed tannins. The acidity is well-balanced with the alcoholic component.

The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Berardo is laced with the essence of black cherry, plum, dried flowers, game, spice and leather. Surprisingly light for a Castelnuovo Berardenga Riserva, the 2016 is drinking quite well today. This is a decidedly restrained wine for the southern part of the appellation. There is good acidity, but less fruit and overall depth than I expected. Even so, all the elements are nicely put together.
