Antinori Chianti Classico Pèppoli 2016
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
Pure and juicy, exuding cherry, strawberry, currant and mineral notes. Firmly structured, with dusty tannins lingering. Give this a year to come together. Best from 2020 through 2028.
Here's a fun, zippy wine to enjoy with pizza or pasta at your local trattoria. The 2016 Chianti Classico Pèppoli is a lean red wine with the fresh aromas of cassis, cranberry, blue violet and grilled herb that are characteristic of Sangiovese. This wine shows easy purity with a light, garnet color. The acidity is glossy and bright. Pèppoli is a bit closed at the moment, but it awakens quickly with a few swirls of the glass. Drink Date: 2018-2020.
