"Ruby red in color with purple highlights, the wine shows intensely fruity notes of cherries and red currants on the nose which fuse very well with the typical sensations of violets which characterize Chianti Classico. Very delicate and quite well integrated the smoky sensations created by the oak aging. The palate is savory with a tasty vein of acidity together with silky and polished tannins." - Notes from the Producer

A Chianti Classico that shows dark plums, raspberries and hints of crushed cherries. Medium body, ripe tannins and a crisp finish. Drink now.

89 pts Wine Spectator

Pure and juicy, exuding cherry, strawberry, currant and mineral notes. Firmly structured, with dusty tannins lingering. Give this a year to come together. Best from 2020 through 2028.

88 pts Wine Advocate

Here's a fun, zippy wine to enjoy with pizza or pasta at your local trattoria. The 2016 Chianti Classico Pèppoli is a lean red wine with the fresh aromas of cassis, cranberry, blue violet and grilled herb that are characteristic of Sangiovese. This wine shows easy purity with a light, garnet color. The acidity is glossy and bright. Pèppoli is a bit closed at the moment, but it awakens quickly with a few swirls of the glass.
