Carobbio Chianti Classico DOCG 2016
- Textured, savoury
This wine is like pulling up to the club in a ruby red Lambo with full-bodied, handpicked sangiovese under the hood. Well, not really, but this wine is just as Italian and just as luxurious. 2016 was a stunner of a Chianti vintage, and the Carobbio - who are all about care and precision - have definitely made the most of it.
This is a wine of extreme elegance and a rustic kind of finesse. Plummy richness, blackcurrant, blueberry, dried herb and blood orange peel, a little bit of that delicious asphalt smell (I’m weird, I know). Great grip and power. The palate is medium-bodied, but has a fullness to it thanks to the wonderful tannin, plus an elegant line of acidity. This is very, very good Chianti for pizza money. Speaking of pizza...

Nestled in the hills of Tuscany, between Florence and Siena, Tenuta Carobbio is 50ha of ancient vineyards, olive groves and woods. Within the “golden hollow” of Panzano, the vineyard is protected by hills and mountains that serve to absorb the warmth of the afternoon sun and ensure that the Chianti Classico and Super Tuscan grapes are perfectly ripened. Sounds pretty speccy right? What if I also told you that in the 15th Century the dad of the actual Mona Lisa lived in the traditional farmhouse? Natural and historical bragging rights aside, since its inception in 1985 Carobbio have focused on excellence. The entrepreneur Carlo Novarese sought to combine the best in modern agricultural science with tradition. Handpicking is still used to ensure only the healthiest and ripest of grapes are used to their produce refined, structured and fragrant wines.
Ah...Tuscany. The home of rolling hills, extra virgin olive oil, Steak Florentine and, of course, Chianti. Everything here is about the earth, and it shows through in the produce. Earthy, vinous, purely rustic and unadulterated. Some of our most enjoyable experiences have come from here. They don't generally come cheap, but they're well worth it.
