The Character

Tasting Notes This is a terrific expression to sample with a platter of thinly sliced pecorino and prosciutto. The Casa Emma 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva shows lots of fruit purity and sharp lines with bright and brilliant fruit, cassis, wild berry and crushed blue flower. From a classic vintage, this Sangiovese shows a fine sense of elegance and length, with a silky and polished finish followed by smoke, crushed stone and light toast.
