Review:
Mori's 2018 Chianti is absolutely delicious. Bright and punchy, with tons of Sangiovese character, the 2018 bristles with energy. Sweet red cherry, white pepper, mint and chalk all race out of the glass in a translucent, mid-weight Chianti Classico that hits all the right notes. Floral and orange zest accents perk up the finish nicely. The 2018 is a fabulous wine by any measure.
