Castello di Volpaia : Chianti Classico 2016

 1 Bottle (750ML)
Parker : 90+ / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Showing ripe fruit and rich intensity, the 2016 Chianti Classico (made with 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot) would pair nicely next to pasta with extra cheese grated on top. This wine is bright and fruit-forward with the fresh acidity to cut though the fat in cheese, butter or cream. The tight and focused nature of the wine's sharp berry flavors would also make a perfect contrast to the natural sweetness in those ingredients. This is always a great food wine, but this vintage is even better poised to match your favorite Italian dishes. Some 120,000 bottles were produced, and the value isn't bad either.
