"The 2016 Syrah Case Via is powerful, dense and rich, with all of the natural intensity of this great Tuscan vintage on display. The Fontodi Syrah is not especially varietal, but it is flat-out gorgeous if taken on its own terms. Today, the Syrah is one of the most backward wines in the range. It clearly needs time for the aromatics to develop, and yet there is so much to look forward to. Drinking window: 2022-2028. 94 points.

Giovanni Manetti is one of the leading producers in Chianti Classico, both for his wines and the influence he wields as the newly elected president of the Consorzio del Chianti Classico. Over the last few years, Manetti has moved towards a style that emphasizes greater energy in the wines and less overt oak influence. Readers will find all that and more in these exceptional new releases. The top wines are thrilling, but the straight Chianti Classico is equally worthy of attention. To be frank, it is better than the top wine at a number of estates."
