The 2016 Chianti Classico is gorgeous. One of the more powerful, deep Chiantis of the year, Monteraponi's 2016 packs a serious punch of fruit and structure, all in the classic style that is so typical of the estate. Floral notes add freshness and lift, but the 2016 mostly stands out for its structure. This is a stellar showing. Don't miss it.
