Michele Braganti’s 2016 Chianti Classico is invigorating, its flavors of earth, dried herbs and red fruits drawn together by spine-tingling acidity. Notes of anise and pink peppercorn emerge with air, and the succulent cherry flavors remain fresh several days after the bottle is opened. Balanced and complex, yet immediately appealing, it’s just what a Chianti Classico should be.
