If it fits in budget and you can find it locally or shipped before Christmas I recommend a 2010 Brunello, and personally like Valdicava.

If you ship it, he should hold onto the bottle a week or two before opening. Of course with that wine or any 2010 Brunello, he may want to save it longer term.

If you are looking for something with a lesser investment, there are some Chiantiís in the 2019 Wine Spectator Top 100 list. I havenít tried any that I can recommend though.
