Rocca di Montegrossi Chianti Classico 2016
Predominantly Sangiovese with just a hint of Colorino and Canaiolo. Quite deep and powerful, silky acidity and nice energy - touch phenolic with espresso and dark cherry and minty chocolate. Good density and freshness. Impressive.
The 2016 Chianti Classico is a very serious wine in its peer group. Rich, vivid and beautifully layered, the Chianti Classico will give readers a very good look at just how compelling 2016 is as a vintage. Sweet red cherry, tobacco and menthol notes open up in the glass, but more than anything else, Rocca di Montegrossi`s Chianti Classico is a wine of true character. It will age gracefully for a number of years. 92 points
