Chianti Superiore is a recently created intermediate step between regional Chianti and the more prestigious Chianti Classico. This well-made red wine from Piccini definitely leans toward the Classico side with its full, rich fruit and pronounced flavors of black cherry, earth and game. It's easy to drink now but has the structure and character to improve for several years.
