The 2016 vintage was elegant: there was ample sunshine and just enough rain to hold off harvest, which allowed the fruit to spend more precious time on the vine. We started picking Sangiovese on September 28th and finished on October 6th. The warmer days contributed to wine with ripe fruit flavors and bold aromatics, while the cool nights retained the vibrant signature acids of Chianti Classico Sangiovese. On the nose are earth tones of clove, bay leaf and tarragon. The palate reveals flavors of raspberries, blueberries and white chocolate followed by a lingering tannic finish of white pepper, orange peel and cypress. With beautiful structure, this wine will age for many years to come and is best to begin drinking in 2021. Pair with wild boar pappardelle, Asiago, Manchego, roasted chicken and tortellini with Bolognese.
