Marchesi Antinori Badia A Passignano Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2016
Badia a Passignano’s 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione is a fantastic representation of its benchmark year. This elegant wine is all about purity and energy, with fistfuls of ripe blue fruits and tart red berries that play off a background of melted chocolate, pressed violet petals, espresso, new leather, and spicy pipe tobacco. Super-refined minerality, dusty tannins and electric acidity work in concert as this wine glides to a velvety, supple finish. Highly enjoyable now or over the next decade and a half.
