2017 Querceto di Castellina Sei Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG Italy
Lots of very ripe plum and rich, earthy notes on the nose, following through to a tight, medium-to full-bodied palate with a mix of tart, citrus-rind acidity and bright, spicy oak. Firm and a little chewy at the end. Needs a year or two to mellow, but it’s all there. Drink after 2021.
