A former Wine Spectator Top 100, Viticcio is one of the biggest stars in Tuscany. We've long been fans of their Chianti Classico, and we are very excited to get our hands on the last of their 2017 Riserva! A blend of 90% Sangiovese with 5% Merot and 5% Syrah, Viticcio impeccably balances power and elegance, and this Chianti Classico has almost a Burgundian sense of style and grace on the palate. Complex aromas of dark cherry, blackberry and cassis, aged 20 months in oak barrels. If you're looking for a cellar worthy Italian red under $25, the Viticcio Chianti Classico Riserva is amazing for the price!
"Supple and vibrant, yet concentrated, featuring black cherry, blackberry, violet, mineral and tobacco aromas and flavors. Firmly structured and balanced, with a terrific finish that melds all the components and leaves a chalky sensation. Sangiovese and Merlot. Best from 2024 through 2038. 4,000 cases made, 2,000 cases imported." The Wine Spectator, 94 Points
