Winemaker Notes

Toscana Bere is a brilliant red color. Aromas of red-berried fruit, and violets are present. On the palate there is excellent balance, freshness and pleasantness that accompany notes of soft fruit, cherry, and hints of violet. Ideal with pasta and pizza, it is recommended as an everyday wine.

Critical Acclaim

WS 87
Wine Spectator
Features blueberry and cherry aromas, with hints of toasty oak. Full-bodied and chewy, this is a little hollow midpalate. Should fill in with age.
RP 87
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Bere, a blend of 50% Sangiovese, 25% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, is classy and elegant from start to finish. Perfumed red berries flow through to a long, clean finish. In 2008 there is a little less density than is normally the case, but this is just about as good a wine as was made in Tuscany in this price range.

Viticcio Sangiovese Harvest at the Winery Winery Image
Founded in 1960 by Lucio and Franca Landini, the Viticcio Estate still stands above the picturesque town of Greve, in the heart of the Chianti Classico region. Their focus is to produce high-quality wines worthy of an international clientele while at the same time respecting the traditions and viticulture of the region. This focus remains the same today under the direction of the second generation, Alessandro Landini.

The estate comprises more than 30 hectares of vines, all of which are farmed organically. Additionally, seven of those hectares are farmed biodynamically. Alessandro strongly believes that in order to produce high-quality wines you must first respect the land in which the vines are planted. To this end he uses no pesticides in his vineyards and fertilizes by planting things such as fava beans and barley between the rows of vines, allowing them to flower, and then plowing them back into the soil to add important nutrients. A handful of wines see some time in the smaller barriques, but the large majority is aged in large botti. The wines of Viticcio represent an important combination of traditional, time-honored techniques with modern-day technology and respect for the environment.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
