Chianti Classico DOCG, Viticcio
95% Sangiovese/5% Merlot
Viticcio’s beginnings are rooted in Chianti Classico. This is the winery’s most historic wine, the first Viticcio label. Brilliant red in color, the pleasant aromas of red fruit, plums, and violets stand out against a background of tobacco, graphite, damp underbrush, and toasty oak. It is made with a blend of Sangiovese grapes selected from all of their vineyards, rounded out with a small addition of Merlot.
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 and it now produces wines from all three of these prestigious territories.
Thousands of years of history lay behind the production of this zone. Grapes have been transformed into wine since the Ancient Etruscans occupied these hills over 2000 years ago.
