2016 Carpineto Chianti Classico Riserva
Cépage: Sangiovese (100%)
Size: 750 ml
Rating(s): 93 (RP)
" The Carpineto 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva is a thickly layered red that boasts ample fruit weight and succulence. The wine proudly trots out blackberry and dried plum that is supported by savory spice, toasted oak and campfire ash. This edition clearly shows the fruit sharpness and purity of the vintage, and it paints a complete portrait of Greve in Chianti, a wine region with cool zones, strong summer sunshine and wild woods. This is a terrific Riserva from Carpineto that hits all the right marks."
