Boasts black cherry, plum, blackberry and thyme flavors wrapped in toasty oak, making this red distinctive and modern. Though polished, there are also dusty tannins and vivid acidity lending support. Fine balance and length. Best from 2023 through 2037.

Lots of sweet berries, cherries and vanilla, yet it’s attractive and enticing. Medium-bodied with lovely fruit through the finish. Very fruity, but in-check. Give it a little time to come together in the bottle. Try after 2022.

There’s a leafy edge to this compact red, keeping a lid on the black cherry and plum flavors. Sanguine and leather details chime in and this remains fresh and persistent on the finish.

The Tenuta di Nozzole 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva La Forra shows classic lines and well-balanced fruit with dark cherry, spice, crushed flower and delicate earthy tones. La Forra is distinguished by its balance, revealing good intensity that doesn’t pull too strongly in any particular direction. The wine’s careful harmony is what gives it that food-friendly appeal.
