Black-skinned berry, violet, new leather and tobacco aromas are front and center. Reflecting the nose, the smooth, approachable palate doles out juicy Marasca cherry, ripe plum, nutmeg and a hint of licorice framed in polished, pliant tannins. Drink through 2024.

The 2017 Chianti Classico offers a pretty succession of forest fruit aromas, cassis and dried raspberry with spice, tar and light shades of smoke on the close. This is an easy, light to medium-weight wine to pair with fried chicken wings. The blend is 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot.
