    When I'm at home and just drinking wines that I love, I'm probably drinking Chianti. Now, don't get me wrong. I don't love all Chianti, but when it's good it's one of the best values in all of Italy. This is that wine! 2016 is a knockout vintage and this is a perfect example why. Soft, supple tannins and bright, zippy acidity give this wine a rich, round structure on which the bright dark cherry fruit, slightly minty aromas can sing.The only downside to this wine is that it is so good now, we likely will drink it all before we get a chance to see what it's like in its potentially long life.

    The nose is full of marasca cherry, hints of truffle, earth, bits of leather, spice, it is really complex. On the palate the wine has richness, structure, balance and shows lots of complexity. The wine really shows the character of the 2016 vintage, depth, structure and a truly savory character, this is no simple, fruity Chianti this is a driven, powerful wine. The tannins are well framed and give a perimeter to the wine but just barely hold in the well-balanced richness and supple middle. This vintage is 88% Sangiovese, 8% Canaiolo and 4% Colorino, it’s aged for 1 year in 55 hectoliter French oak (Allier) barrels, if you’re not up on hectoliter conversion that would fit almost 25 barriques, it’s a BIG barrel, and the wine is Certified Organic. I love this vintage and will be stocking up!

    Here is one our most popular wines from Tuscany! The 2016 reminds me a lot of the 2010 vintage, black cherries, spicy oak, and a touch of earth. In the mouth, the wine is full-bodied, with fine concentration, with well integrated & soft tannins. Enjoy tonight (needs decanting time, an hour or so) and over the next few years. Two BIG Thumbs up !!!
