Viticcio Chianti Classico Riserva 2010

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

The 2010 Chianti Classico Riserva is an impressive effort with a fine quality of elegant red fruit. This bold Riserva opens with aromas of wet earth, porcino mushroom, leather and a hint of rose petal. It shows soft, chewy tannins that are balanced by lovely acidity. Drink this in two or three more years to let it develop more complexity. Anticipated maturity: 2014–2022.

Cherry, plum, tobacco and earth flavors mingle with stern tannins and lively acidity. Moderately long, with an amaro-inflected aftertaste. Drink now through 2020.

This dense wine starts with aromas of blue flower, black berries, vanilla and toasted oak. The palate delivers ripe black cherry and raspberry accented with clove and white pepper alongside astringent wood tannins that dry out the mouth. Drink 2015–2020.

Firm tannins support an expressive core of dark red/blue fruits in the 2010 Chianti Classico Riserva. The aromas and flavors are bright, delineated and nuanced. Readers should give the wine another 6–12 months in the cellar for the tannins to soften, but this is already an impressive Chianti that should drink well for another handful of years. Hints of tobacco, underbrush and licorice wrap around the finish.
