Bibbiano Chianti Classico Riserva 2016
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
A beam of intense cherry shines through this densely structured red, keeping it defined and energetic. Iron, earth and tobacco flavors add depth as this stays long, with mouthcoating tannins on the finish. Best from 2023 through 2045. 2,500 cases made, 500 cases imported. — BS
The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva is a round, intense and plummy expression with a pretty bouquet of intense berry fruit. The wine is beautifully contoured and rich, with background notes of spice and sweet tobacco that do the trick. It's a solid choice for a hearty meatloaf. This Riserva ages in both cement and tonneaux for 18 months. Production is 35,000 bottles strong, and you get good value here.
