Viticcio Chianti Classico 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"Exhibits lots of blackberry and vanilla character on the nose, with hints of flowers. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a long, crisp finish. A beautiful wine...90." Smart Buys WS 08/08.-----"Viticcio’s 2006 Chianti Classico is a plump, juicy wine loaded with plummy dark fruit. It is a pleasing wine to enjoy over the next few years..." WA 07/08.

Cherries, berries, a mildly acidic quality. Simple and pleasant enough. Much better with food. No real complexity, but easy to drink.

Exhibits lots of blackberry and vanilla character on the nose, with hints of flowers. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a long, crisp finish. A beautiful wine. Best after 2011.

Hot weather that produced wines with incredible levels of ripeness, along with blending 10% Merlot into the cuvée, resulted in a Chianti that exudes a ripe and lush style that's simply just too hard not to like.

An easygoing red, with ripe plum, mineral and vanilla character. Medium-bodied, slightly hollow, but nicely spicy on the finish. Drink now.

A well-balanced nose, with black fruit and a hint of tobacco and mineral. Medium-bodied, with fine, well-integrated tannins and a clean, minerally finish. Drink now.

Delicious, intensely fruity, with ripe plum, crushed blackberry, tobacco and vanilla aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a fruit-driven palate and finish. Needs a bit more body to be outstanding, but this is a good value. Drink now through 2004.

Don't let the value price fool you - this is a delicious, even slightly decadent bottle of Chianti Classico, with very ripe plum and tobacco on the nose, a medium body, well-knit medium tannins and a savory, fruity aftertaste. Best now through 2001.

Offers aromas and flavors of cherry, cedar, licorice and menthol. The mouthfeel is even, full and supple, and the long, dry finish displays substantial tannins as well as earth and spice accents. Can be held for three to five years.
