Poggerino Labirinto 2016


It would qualify to be labeled Chianti Classico, but years ago the winemakers decided to bottle wine from their younger vines under a separate label. Both of his wines are well priced, but at $19, this is an unusually good bargain for a weeknight red.

The 2016 Labirinto offers many of the same pleasures as their Chianti Classico, but with less tannin, less complexity, and for a couple fewer bucks. In the nose it shows violets, cherries, cassis and some earth. The mouth is intense and energetic — the tannins are young but juicy, and the mouthfeel is bold and refreshing. Look for sour cherry jam and minerals.
