Pretty harsh wine. And certainly not a good value. Wouldn't buy this one again. Let it breathe for a good hour before its palatable.

Lush richness and velvety concentration set this wine apart from most Chianti Classico. The blend includes 15% Merlot (which is a lot) and you can really taste spice, chocolate fudge and black cherry. Determined oak notes reveal themselves in the mouth and add to the wine's overall richness.

The estate's 2006 Chianti Classico Riserva is a rich sensual wine bursting with sour dark cherries, French oak, new leather and flowers. As it sits in the glass the wine's inner perfume emerges with even greater clarity, melding beautifully into the soft, creamy finish. This is a terrific effort from Viticcio. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2016.

Classy, elegant CC, with plum, berry and soft mineral character. Medium-to full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, long, minerally finish. Another standout from Chianti. Terrific value here considering the quality. Best after 2005.

Hints of tobacco and ripe red berry aromas. Complex palate with blackberry, mineral and subtle earth. Fine tannins and a smooth, elegant finish.
