There's a solid spine of tannins, yet this is harmonious overall, with a terrific finish that evokes fruit, iron and tobacco notes. Best from 2023 through 2045. 700 cases made, 450 cases imported. — BS

The Casa Emma 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione is bright and true with a dark center of gravity and lots of luscious fruit. Dark cherry, wild berry and plum are framed by soft tones of earth, spice and blue flower. This balanced wine emits fine notes of candied cherry and tart fruit, giving it a punchy, genuine personality. This is a knockout vintage from organic farmer Casa Emma to try with pasta made with polvere di Sangiovese, the estate's unique pomace flour from Sangiovese. - Monica Larner

On the elegantly structured, medium-bodied palate, taut, refined tannins support juicy Marasca cherry, ripe plum, tobacco and licorice. Bright acidity provides focus and balance. Drink 2022–2031.
