A modern style, driven by cherry and berry fruit, vanilla and milk chocolate flavors. Firm and tightening up, with plenty of grip and leafy elements on the back end. Best from 2022 through 2033. 3,750 cases made, 1,000 cases imported.
The 2016 Chianti Classico Tenuta Sant'Alfonso is a pure expression of Sangiovese from a single vineyard site with vines planted from 200 to 250 meters above sea level. This is a mid-weight Tuscan red that offers a tonic and energized bouquet with wild berry, tangy spice, grilled herb and crushed gravel. This vintage delivers balance and elegance.
