2016 is such a great vintage for Chianti's so there was a lot of hope for this. It is solid but there are a lot of better values in the market. Ruby in color. The nose has cherries and slight hay. On the palate, this is light to medium bodied. Strong acidity. Some cherry fruit. Simple. It requires food and worked fine with some pasta. It started to show some volatile acidity after a few hours. Drink now.
