2016 is turning out to be a fantastic vintage for us, as evidenced by this wine and our Sangiovese Riserva. This '16 CF has the bright fruit of the '15 combined with the texture and tannin structure of the 2012. More Chateauneuf Du Pape-like than the 2015-meaning it will age well over the next 5 to 8 years.
