Chianti Classico San Giusto a Rentennano 2016 (750ML)
92 Points, Monica Larner, Wine Advocate: "This benchmark Chianti Classico estate guarantees impressive quality on its most basic and carefree wines. The 2016 Chianti Classico is elegantly streamlined and tight with wild berry and cherry aromas that maintain their brilliant sparkle and freshness, especially in this classic vintage. You get that characteristic crunchiness or spiciness that Sangiovese awards in cooler years such as this. This wine is made with 95% Sangiovese and 5% Canaiolo, and aging is straightforward with just ten months in botte, barrique and tonneaux. Some 47,600 were produced." 10/18
92 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "San Giusto a Rentennano's 2016 Chianti Classico pulses with energy and vibrancy from the very first taste. Lifted aromatics and silky tannins add to an impression of total finesse. Hints of rose petal, lavender, mint and sage add nuance, but it is the wine's balance that is most impressive. The purity of the flavors and textures is just stunning. Once again, San Giusto offers one of the very best Chianti Classicos out there, a wine that has the potential to elevate the reputation of an entire region with regards to what is possible in terms of quality." 2/19
94 Points, James Suckling: "Subtle aromas of cherries, blueberries and lavender follow through to a full body with firm and chewy tannins, which are polished and intense. Bright acidity, too. Needs three or four years to come together. A beauty. Better than 2015. Drink in 2021."
95 Points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator: "This red offers a pure core of black currant, blackberry and violet flavors shaded by earth and mint notes. The tannins are uplifting and refined. This has terrific energy and balance, with a long, expansive aftertaste of fruit, earth and mineral. Should have a long life ahead." 6/19
