The color is bright ruby, the nose unveils layers of iris, violet, tobacco, black pepper and marasca cherry. The taste is well balanced, tightly knit with supple tannins, mineral notes, a mouth cleansing fresh acidity. Warm and persistent. Pairs well with first courses such as pasta, meat dishes and moderately aged cheeses.

Opening to a lean, mid-weight appearance, the 2017 Chianti Classico shows a fairly ripe fruit profile due to the warm vintage, with overt tones of strawberry and dried raspberry. This Sangiovese (blended with smaller parts Canaiolo, Ciliegiolo and Colorino) is simple and straightforward, with a touch of sweetness on the close. I prefer this wine from the cooler vintages because you get more fruit detailing and focus. Some 133,000 bottles were released.
