The 2016 Pèppoli is ruby red in color. Intensely fruity notes of cherries and red currants dominate on the nose along with integrated hints of violets and a light touch of toasted oak. The palate, fresh and savory with supple tannins, shows a finish and aftertaste which recall the sensations first felt on the nose.

Fruity aromas of red berry and plum mingle with whiffs of blue flower and dark spice. Juicy and polished, the palate doles out succulent Marasca cherry, blackberry and clove accompanied by fine-grained tannins. Drink through 2025.

This is reticent in aroma and flavor, featuring a kernel of cherry buried in the bitter almond, earth and iron notes. A tobacco element creeps in on the aftertaste. Solid, but needs a year to come out of its shell. Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah. Best from 2021 through 2028.

The 2017 Chianti Classico Pèppoli withstands the heat of the vintage relatively unscathed, with bright berry fruit, blue flower, potting soil and wild herb. The wine offers good freshness, an easy-drinking style and the wild cherry flavors to pair with a heaping burger and fries.
