Castello di Radda, Chianti Classico DOCG (Tuscany, Italy) 2015

($22):  In a word, delicious.  It’s just what you’d expect from Chianti Classico: a wonderful combination of dark cherry-like fruit and herbal qualities. Not all gussied up with oak, the alluring earthiness of Chianti Classico comes through.  Polished tannins in this mid-weight wine impart a suave texture. Freshness — that’s Tuscan lively acidity speaking — makes you want to come back for more in between bites of fettuccine with Bolognese sauce. 92 Michael Apstein Nov 7, 2017
