Viticcio Chianti Classico Riserva 2015
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
95 Points - Wine Spectator
Intense ruby red with violet nuances. A complex nose with sour cherry, ripe blackberry, and cassis with undertones of cinnamon, nutmeg, and freshly ground pepper. On the palate, soft and fresh, with the alcohol rounding out the harshness of the tannins. Finishes with a long, toasted note. Will age well for more than ten years.
Intense aromas of black currant, blackberry, flint, iron, tar and black pepper mark this powerful red, which is vibrant and solidly tannic, yet all the components are in the right place. There's terrific energy on the lingering aftertaste of dark fruit and mineral. Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah. Best from 2022 through 2043.
