Viticcio Chianti Classico Riserva 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2005 Chianti Classico Riserva Viticcio is a pretty wine with dark fruit, herbs and tobacco and an easygoing personality. Like many Chiantis in this vintage, the wine’s lack of stuffing makes the tannins more prominent than they might otherwise be, but there is good freshness and acidity that suggest the wine will drink well over the next several years. The Riserva Viticcio was aged in a combination of medium and small barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2017..." WA 07/08. "Young and tightly wound, with crushed black fruit and a good dose of well integrated, light smokey oak. Full to medium bodied, with an intense, layered palate, offerin clean fruit, oak and marine minerals. Wait for this one, though it’s sp good already. Best after 2009..90" WS 10/08.
