This red starts out smooth, displaying ripe black cherry and plum flavors, along with earth, iron and woodsy elements. Gains power as this builds on the palate, ending in an extended aftertaste of loam, iron and wild herb accents. Best from 2023 through 2045. 3,300 cases made, 250 cases imported. — BS

The Bibbiano 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Capannino shows classic lines and balanced intensity with a nice spot of acidity and plenty of dark berry fruit to soften it out. The 2016 vintage is a classic one in Tuscany, and that's why you get so much cooling cherry, forest berry and cassis on this versatile Gran Selezione wine. Try to find some wild boar for a Tuscan pappardelle al cinghiale with shaved pecorino.

The 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Capannino is another impressive wine in this range. Rich and beguiling, the Gran Selezione brings out darker inflections of Sangiovese. Black cherry, leather, lavender, espresso and spice all develop effortlessly. With air, the 2016 can be enjoyed now, but it clearly has the substance to age well for years to come.
