Winemaker's Notes

#35 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

Critical Acclaim

"Fabulous aromas of blackberry, dark chocolate and flowers follow through to a full-bodied palate, with supersilky tannins and amazing richness and subtlety. Goes on for minutes on the palate. Best from 2010 through 2015. 2,345 cases made."
93 Points

"The estate’s 2006 Chianti Classico Riserva is a rich sensual wine bursting with sour dark cherries, French oak, new leather and flowers. As it sits in the glass the wine’s inner perfume emerges with even greater clarity, melding beautifully into the soft, creamy finish. This is a terrific effort from Viticcio. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2016. "

This Chianti is OK but not worth the price. In Italy I tried several Chiantis much superior to this one and at a much cheaper price. Off course, it's Italy and we never get those small local productions. Unfortunately I was influenced by the "rating" marketing scheme. Don't spend more when you can get a reasonable chianti for less. Like i said, it is OK but nothing special in this one. If you don't mind paying extra for the so called 'premium review' go ahead, you are not going to get disappointed, but don't expect anything special. If you never drink Chianti, and your previous experiences were with some cheap Chianti at the local grocery store, then this will be great. But if you are a Chianti connoisseur don't waste the extra money.

Learn About Sangiovese

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
