“Subtle aromas of raspberries and red plums with hints of roasted meat. Medium to full body, ripe yet tightly wound tannins and a clean finish. Just a baby. Drink from 2020.~JS

Wine Advocate 91
“This wine is an absolute steal. The 2016 Chianti Classico Rubiolo is 95% Sangiovese and 5% Merlot. Most of the grapes come from the Panzano area, and a smaller percentage comes from Castellini in Chianti. Thanks to some of the high-altitude positioning of the vineyards (up to 500 meters above sea level), grapes were harvested late ( in mid- October) in this cooler vintage. This is one of the reasons you get so much fruit freshness with intense berry aromas. The Panzano in Chianti vineyard has old vines planted in compact clay soils with galestro stone. The Castellina area has similar yet slightly looser soils with terraces that show increased vigor and fertility among the plants. This wine is not as dark or dense compared to the 2015 vintage, yet it is fresher and more elegant. Some 50,000 bottles were made.”~ML

Wine Spectator 91
"Bright, bursting with black cherry, iron and earth flavors, this red is rich and supple. Dusty tannins seep in on the finish, but overalll this has an appealing softness. Drink now through 2028."~BS
