Castello di Albola Chianti Classico 2016 (91 points, $17)
Compact for now, this shows ripe cherry, plum and strawberry flavors that offset the solid tannins, with fine harmony. A lingering finish echoes the fruit, adding earth, tobacco and iron notes. Best from 2021 through 2033. 50,000 cases made, 8,500 cases imported. From Italy.—Bruce Sanderson
