Viticcio Chianti Classico Riserva 2017
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
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.
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.
