The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Poggio a'Frati is dense, rich and enveloping. Dark cherry, plum, mocha, licorice and spice build in a sumptuous, vibrant Riserva that hits all the right notes. The 2016 offers a captivating mélange of fruit richness, energy and intensity. The high altitude Poggio a'Frati vineyard did exceptionally well in 2016. This is such a gorgeous wine.

This opens with aromas of violet, underbrush and tobacco. The savory, balanced palate shows black cherry jam, star anise and clove alongside firm acidity and fine-grained tannins. Drink 2022-2029.
