Why do we love this wine?
This wine is like pulling up to the club in a ruby red Lambo with full-bodied, handpicked sangiovese under the hood. Well, not really, but this wine is just as Italian and just as luxurious. 2016 was a stunner of a Chianti vintage, and the Carobbio - who are all about care and precision - have definitely made the most of it.
This is a wine of extreme elegance and a rustic kind of finesse. Plummy richness, blackcurrant, blueberry, dried herb and blood orange peel, a little bit of that delicious asphalt smell (I’m weird, I know). Great grip and power. The palate is medium-bodied, but has a fullness to it thanks to the wonderful tannin, plus an elegant line of acidity. This is very, very good Chianti for pizza money. Speaking of pizza...
