VITICCIO WINERY 2010 VITICCIO CHIANTI CLASSICO RISERVA
"Lots of blueberry and toasted oak character with vanilla undertones. Full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. The new wood and ripe fruit needs to come together still. Try in 2014." James Suckling 91 points
|Wine maker notes
|Fattoria Viticcio’s Chianti Classico Riserva is the result of careful selection of the finest grapes during harvesting, with a predominance of Tuscan Sangiovese. Vinification is carried out in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats with a long maceration period. Rapid warming of the cellar at the end of the primary fermentation phase enables the swift onset of malolactic fermentation. Depending on the vintage, the wine is aged – in varying proportions and periods of time – in both medium-sized oak barrels and small oak barriques, in order to enhance the aromas to the full. The wine is then aged in horizontally-stored bottles and in temperature-controlled cellars for a minimum of 6 months.
