This Chianti Classico is made from a delicious Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah blend. Pronounced hints of cherry and blackberry accompany earthy oak tones that unite perfectly to create a rich and powerful flavor. Its bold tannins and complex bouquet give this wine a smooth, long finish for a delightful drinking experience that will leave you wanting more.
The Viticcio Chianti Classico DOCG Riserva is aged in barriques for 12 months before being transferred to large Slavonian oak barrels for a further 8 months. This process is what gives the wine its unique flavor and irresistible ruby red color. We recommend aging it for a few extra years in the cellar - if you can wait that long! Tomato-based dishes harmonize perfectly with the high acidity of this Chianti. We recommend serving this tipple with a classic spaghetti al Pomodoro or a hearty lentil bolognese. If pasta’s not your thing, then this aromatic red will also go down a treat when paired with a simple marinara pizza.

Vitticcio is a terrific Italian
Vitticcio is a terrific Italian chianti, and I was surprised that one of the few places I could still find some at a reasonable price was PlantX.com. I wish I had asked you to delay shipping until a cooler month because heat is not good for wine. Next time!
