Winemaker Notes

Intense ruby red with violet nuances. A complexnose with sour cherry, ripe blackberry, and cassis withundertones of cinnamon, nutmeg, and freshly ground pepper.On the palate, soft and fresh, with the alcohol rounding out theharshness of the tannins. Finishes with a long, toasted note. Willage well for more than ten years.
Blend: 90% Sangiovese, 5% Merlot, 5% Syrah

Critical Acclaim

WS 95
Wine Spectator
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. Terrific energy on the lingering aftertaste of dark fruit and mineral. Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah. Best from 2022 through 2043.
JS 92
James Suckling
A firm and silky red with plum and light chocolate character. Medium-bodied, soft and velvety. Delicious fruit.

COMMENTARY: The 2012 Viticcoio is an excellent blend of Bordeaux grape varieties. TASTING NOTES: This wine offers a bold combination of black fruit and savory spices in its aromas and flavors. Pair it with grilled beef. (Tasted: May 16, 2020, San Francisco, CA)

Viticcio Winery Video

Viticcio has been making wine since 1964 among the rolling green hills of Tuscan wine country in Greve in Chianti, between Florence and Siena. 

The winery’s vinicultural production began with the desire to capture and embody the potential of Chianti Classico, and it wasn’t long before Viticcio wines became renowned for their true and high quality expression of the Tuscan terroir. Since then, the winery has grown to encompass 120 hectares of estate-owned land among the hills of Chianti Classico and Maremma. 

Today the Biba family carries forward the production of Viticcio winery, making wines that express the most authentic link between nature and man. They are driven by passion and enthusiasm to make their wines classic and elegant, yet with a fresh outlook on the terroir.

Chianti Classico Wine

Tuscany, Italy

View all products

One of the first wine regions anywhere to be officially recognized and delimited, Chianti Classico is today what was originally defined simply as Chianti. Already identified by the early 18th century as a superior zone, the official name of Chianti was proclaimed upon the area surrounding the townships of Castellina, Radda and Gaiole, just north of Siena, by Cosimo III, Grand Duke of Tuscany in an official decree in 1716.

However, by the 1930s the Italian government had appended this historic zone with additonal land in order to capitalize on the Chianti name. It wasn’t until 1996 that Chianti Classico became autonomous once again when the government granted a separate DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita) to its borders. Ever since, Chianti Classico considers itself no longer a subzone of Chianti.

Many Classicos are today made of 100% Sangiovese but can include up to 20% of other approved varieties grown within the Classico borders. The best Classicos will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and be full-bodied with plenty of ripe fruit (plums, black cherry, blackberry). Also common among the best Classicos are expressive notes of cedar, dried herbs, fennel, balsamic or tobacco.

Among Italy's elite red grape varieties, Sangiovese has the perfect intersection of bright red fruit and savory earthiness and is responsible for the best red wines of Tuscany. While it is best known as the chief component of Chianti, it is also the main grape in Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and reaches the height of its power and intensity in the complex, long-lived Brunello di Montalcino. Somm Secret—Sangiovese doubles under the alias, Nielluccio, on the French island of Corsica where it produces distinctly floral and refreshing reds and rosés.
