Showing ripe fruit and rich intensity, the 2016 Chianti Classico (made with 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot) would pair nicely next to pasta with extra cheese grated on top. This wine is bright and fruit-forward with the fresh acidity to cut though the fat in cheese, butter or cream. The tight and focused nature of the wine's sharp berry flavors would also make a perfect contrast to the natural sweetness in those ingredients. This is always a great food wine, but this vintage is even better poised to match your favorite Italian dishes. Some 120,000 bottles were produced, and the value isn't bad either.

Aromas of crushed raspberries, blueberries and plums. Hints of sliced strawberries, too. Full body, soft tannins and a medium finish. Drink now.

Packed with sweet cherry, raspberry, earth and mineral flavors, this red is lean and toned. Dense, but refined tannins lend support as this winds down on the lingering finish. Best from 2022 through 2032. 5,833 cases made, 250 cases imported.
