Wine Spectator Notes
Intense aromas of black currant, blackberry, flint, iron, tar and black pepper mark this powerful red, which is vibrant and solidly tannic, yet all the components are in the right place. There's terrific energy on the lingering aftertaste of dark fruit and mineral. Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah. Best from 2022 through 2043. - Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator
The 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva has put on quite a bit of weight since I tasted it last year. Black cherry, plum, leather, licorice, smoke and tobacco are some of the many notes that develop in this brooding, powerful Riserva. The ripeness of the vintage adds an extra dimension of sweetness and volume that works nicely to play off the natural vibrancy of Sangiovese. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

QualityThe Viticcio family has been making wine in Tuscany since 1964. Nestled in-between Florence and Siena, in the town of Greve, the wines of Viticcio wonderfully show the terroir of the region with their Sangioveses having darker red to bluish overtones. With the 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva, one should expect intense, fruit-driven characteristics with a brooding structure that keeps the wine in terrific overall balance. This wine from Viticcio offers plenty of near to medium term appeal with a versatility that demands it be kept within reach.
