Viticcio Chianti Classico DOCG

2015

In a Nutshell

This is the winery’s most historic wine, the first Viticcio label.

Tasting Notes

Brilliant ruby red in colour, on the nose this wine offers scents of red fruits, plums, and violets. Also evident are notes of blond tobacco, graphite, damp underbrush, and toasty notes. On the palate, it is pleasantly refreshing, with elegant and balanced tannins that leave a long finish of toasted and bitter cacao notes, which come from aging in wood. Will age well for a few years.

Production Notes

Manual harvest during the second week of September for Merlot and the fourth week for Sangiovese. Alcoholic fermentation at 26-30°C in stainless steel and maceration for 15 days. Malolactic fermentation in stainless steel. Aging is in barriques of 225 and 300 l and large Slavonian oak barrels for about 12 months
