2016 Chianti Classico DOCG Riserva "Vigna Casi", Tuscany, Italy

Slightly tobacco-like, earthy and somewhat woody scent of red and black berries with floral hints. Quite juicy fruit, again with some woody tones, but also some freshness and bite, first slightly sandy and drying tannin, which however quickly binds with air, good persistence, quite clear minerality, a hint of smoke and tobacco on the palate, peppery notes, still undeveloped, relatively elegant and fine style, very good, tight, fresh and juicy finish, again with bite
