Castello d'Albola Chianti Classico 2016
The estate is also a stunning example of Tuscan Renaissance architecture. The Zonin family owns important vineyard sites across the Italian peninsula, but this property is where Gianni Zonin, his wife and three sons enjoy an intimate family connection. With some of the most historically important vineyards in the Chianti Classico denomination, Castello d’Albola represents the tip of the Zonin- quality pyramid. The 2011 vintage was named TOP 100 WINE OF THE YEAR 2015 #46

Wine SpectatorRipe cherry, plum and strawberry flavors offset the solid tannins in this red. Compact for now, this shows fine harmony and a lingering aftertaste that echoes the fruit and adds earth, tobacco and iron notes. Best from 2021 through 2033.
James SucklingThe palate has lots of rose water, nutmeg and blood oranges. Medium to full body, succulent tannins and a juicy finish. Drink now.
