Chianti Classico DOCG Riserva “Novecento” 2016 - Robert Parker - 94 Points
"The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Novecento takes the intensity and the level of sophistication up an important step if you have just tasted the entry-level Chianti Classico immediately before this wine (as I did). This wine is brooding and multifaceted with layers of dark fruit, spice, tar and smoke. There is a very deep quality here too that reminds me of earth or crushed black rocks. This beautiful vintage offers great texture that is velvety and rich without ever feeling heavy or slow. The finish is very long and crisp. It would be great with braised meats." ROBERT PARKER
