Another fantastic, great value Chianti from the 2016 vintage. this wine is deep and full of cherry and dark fruit flavors.
This wine retails for $22 everywhere else. We bought it at one time only discounted price to give our customers the best deal ever on this wine. (They make a regular Chianti Rufina at a lower price, this is the Reserva) So when this batch that we just brought in sells out, that will be it at this fantastic price! Believe it this wine drinks like a great Chianti with a price tag of $22 and up. It has tons of richness and depth. It drank incredibly well the next day without using any kind of method to preserve it over night. Really impressive!
From Wine Advocate: Paolo Masi's (Fattoria di Basciano) 2016 Chianti Rufina Riserva is a linear and elegant wine. The bouquet starts off with dried cherry and dark fruit, but just as much attention is given to nuanced aromas of crushed stone or brimstone. The mouthfeel shows medium intensity, and the tannins add some dryness; however, this wine produces very food-friendly qualities, especially if pasta or lasagna is on the menu. This is 93% Sangiovese and 7% Colorino
