As with his Riserva, Enrico Pozzesi sticks to tradition for this Chianti Classico annata, a blend of sangiovese with ten percent of canaiolo and colorino. He ages the wine for 15 months in large Slavonian oak casks, giving a powerful wine with grippy, ferrous tannins and dark fruit flavors layered with notes of graphite and dried cherry. Decant it before serving to give those tannins time to soften. Wine & Spirits.
