Viticcio Chianti Classico Riserva Lucius 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2007 Chianti Classico Riserva Lucius is the estate’s more modern Chianti and includes a percentage of Cabernet Sauvingon and Merlot, in addition to being aged in French oak. Those important considerations notwithstanding, it is the finesse of the tannins that elevates the Lucious in 2007. Layers of dark fruit emerge from a firm yet silky frame endowed with a gorgeous combination of power and elegance. The international varieties speak with a distinctive voice, but all of the elements come together with tons of class. Ripe wild cherries, rosemary, minerals and French oak flow effortlessly through to the long, enveloping finish. This is a gem from Viticcio. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027...Viticcio is an excellent source for well-priced wines from the heart of Chianti Classico...92." WA 10/31/10

Lots of blackberry and raspberry aromas follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a lively finish. Nice. Drink now.

Dark, brooding purple-plum color with full throttle lush mouthfeel. Plenty of blackberry, cassis aromas and a savory undertone of cedar. Weighty, full-bodied Chianti with enough ripe fruit to drink now or cellar for a few years.

Dark, with juicy blackberry and a hint of iodine character. Interesting, if a bit one-dimensional. Best after 2006.
