Quite a surprise from this Chianti Classico, super-priced at 50 bucks a bottle but rather staid in the glass.

Dievole imbues this Tuscan wine with a dusty, chalky texture, and it’s extremely young on the palate. Decanting helps, bringing out flavors of roasted meat, red peppers, fig, and tobacco — but the finish is too thin and a little alcoholic in character. It’s hard to peg as typical of Chianti, but it has a fair enough charm to merit a look.
