Viticcio Riserva 2016 Chianti Classico is a dry, full-bodied and mouth-watering red wine blend of 90% Sangiovese, 5% Merlot and 5% Syrah fragrant with ripe cherry, plum, cassis, cracked pepper, baking spices and dried wild herbs silky on the palate. Tannins are dusty. Produced from vines five to 30 years of age grown in colombino stone and alberese soil. The wine was aged in French oak barrels up to 12 months with an additional 12 months in large Slavonian oak barrels. Enjoy with a classic meaty lasagne.

Chianti Classico food pairings: spaghetti and meatballs, veal chops Florentine, hard cheeses.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
