Viticcio Chianti Classico Riserva 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Colour: intense ruby red . Aromas: soft fruits, currants, black cherry, spicy notes. Palate: the attack on the palate is firm, very full, red fruit and spices with dense and even tannins that allow a smooth and balanced finish.

The 2009 Chianti Classico Riserva boasts considerable richness in its powerful, dense fruit. Over the last few years the estate has eliminated new oak barrels, and what comes through most in the 2009 is a generous, pliant personality that is quite appealing. Super ripe red cherries burst from the expressive finish. The 2009 was aged in a combination of 225 and 500-liter barrels, and includes a dollop of Merlot in the blend. I actually preferred the straight Riserva to the Beatrice. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2019.

A resinous sheen of oak adds spice and tannins to this red laced with flavors of cherry, currant and herb. Dry and astringent on the finish. Best from 2013 through 2018.
