Bibbiano Chianti Classico DOCG 2016 Review

Rich, succulent and with a nice long finish is the first thing I typed when I tried this wine. The structure is what grabs you and draws you in. The alcohol is a bit prominent, but the tannin has a subtle grip winding through the wine like a firm backbone, keeping the acidity in check and giving the wine a very nice depth. Classic aromas of sour cherry and forest floor along with some baking spices and oak are on the nose, but this wine is all about that mouthfeel. Get a big dinner ready and pop a bottle. This wine will stand up nicely.
