Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG, Viticcio
90% Sangiovese/5% Merlot/5% Syrah
This opens with aromas of black plum, roasted coffee bean and a whiff of toasted oak. The chewy palate offers prune, espresso and star anise alongside tightly knit tannins. In the tradition of the high quality of Chianti Classico, its perfumes and its taste are the combination of Sangiovese with two international varieties, Merlot and Syrah.
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.
