TN: 2016 Tenuta di Nozzole Chianti Classico Riserva

#1 Post by Bryce K »

This winter's exploration of inexpensive Italians continues with a bottle of 2016 Tenuta di Nozzle Chianti Classico Riserva (~$22).

Initial sip is cherry and menthol, light on the tannins, but bright acidity that is well balanced with the fruit. Nice finish to licorice and spices. Not complicated (and I was left wanting some more tannic backbone), but very pleasant. It's worth having around for those nights when you want a glass of something refreshing and non-fussy but I wouldn't race to replenish it.
