Very structured on the palate with loads of firm tannins, coated with generous fruit and refreshened by cutting acidity. Drink from 2023.

The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Berardo is a classic mid-weight Tuscan red with lots of pretty freshness and firm tannins that are not at all astringent or bitter. I'm finding that some of these wines from Castello di Bossi are a bit clipped, hallow or short on the finish. That is the case here. Open it alongside an amatriciana with plenty of shaved pecorino. Some 30,000 bottles were made.- ML
