Pagliarese Chianti Classico 2016
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Chianti Classico by Pagliarese is an elegantly trimmed down red wine with delicate aromas of wild berry, red cherry, cassis and spice. Those fruit tones are generously and seamlessly integrated within the mid-weight body of the wine. As you should expect from Sangiovese (blended in this case with 10% Canaiolo and Mammolo), you get a healthy dose of balanced acidity on the easygoing finish. Some 40,000 bottles were made.
Wine SpectatorCherry, bitter almond, earth and iron flavors mark this lean, sinewy red, which finishes short, with an astringent feel. Drink now through 2020. 3,333 cases made.
