Viticcio Chianti Classico Prunaio 1997

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

In stark contrast to the other wines of the evening this offers distinct oaken spice on the nose. Lots of Bordeaux character though balanced by intense red berry fruit but without offering much else. On the palate this is downright opulent with lots of wood tannin subsumed in the lush pillow of fruit. Full bodied and with good supporting acidity this is dark and chewy but monolithic with plummy, bitter cocoa tinged fruit and a spicy, powerful finish. This needs time for the wood to integrate though it seems to have all the requisite materials to be fine. 2011-2020

A touch musty, seared iron, dried berry fruit. Sweet fruit, round, friendly entry then bitter, drying tannins on the finish. Austere tannins, nice mouth grab, a bit of cola, and muscular. Still has some fruit but not much. Nice structure, little bit of heat, little corked, flavors still very evolved. 87 pts
